Need to transfer the ownership of your home?

Want to be released from your mortgage obligations?

Following a divorce or separation, co-owners of a property may need to change the ownership arrangement. Whether this is as a result of a court order or by voluntary agreement, the transfer of equity is a legal transaction that should be completed by a licensed conveyancer.

Permission will have to be sought from your mortgage company and any other secured lenders and the transfer must be registered at the land registry to be binding.

We can negotiate with your mortgage lender for consent to transfer and release from mortgage obligations depending on your circumstances. We make sure that the conditions of your divorce or separation agreement are met and evidence is provided to the court.
