Transfer of Equity

Transfer of Equity is a legal term which denotes the process of transferring part ownership or interest in a property to another. There are a few reasons why transfers of equity take place. The most common of which are:

Marriage or Co-Habiting

Divorce or Separation

Tax

The process of transferring equity is incredibly complex. It can include a lot of legal documentation such as land registry applications and stamp duty land tax forms. The process is further complicated with the inclusion of a mortgage, as you will need the mortgage lenders permission before making any changes.
