Transfer of Equity

Is part of your property changing ownership?

If the legal ownership of property or land that you own is changing hands, but at least one of the owners is set to remain on the title, then a transaction known as a transfer of equity is required. There are a number of reasons for requiring a transfer of equity. Common ones we deal with here at HardingEvans include:

  • Marriage: transferring the title of a home into joint names
  • Divorce/separation: changing ownership from joint names into one sole name
  • Tax planning: transferring a share of the family home to a child or family member
  • Adjustment of financial shares: altering the percentage of a property each person owns
  • Your transfer of equity is in good hands with Harding Evans. Our service is swift and simple, with an emphasis on ensuring that you don’t have to deal with any of the usual problems associated with the transfer of equity procedure.

If your transfer of equity is due to a divorce or separation, then remember, before you proceed with your transfer of equity it is essential that any conflict between you and the other co-owner is resolved. This sometimes requires legal assistance. Our divorce and separation department can assist you with this. We also have a dedicated Wills and Probate department that can advise you about transferring a share of your property to a child or family member.
