A message to our clients:

In light of the current climate and the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 we wanted to reassure all our clients that we are committed to following the Government guidelines and advice from the World Health Organistation as we get it.

Currently we can continue to operate our business as usual across all the services that we offer our clients, both current and prospective. We will be monitoring this and will be adapting to the situation as it presents itself in the coming months.

Current advice is to limit direct contact with clients which means that we request that you do not attend our offices unless it is essential and agreed in advance by one of our directors.

We request that to help enable us to fight the spread of the virus all communication is by email, telephone or post until further notice. The health of our clients and our staff is of the highest importance to us so we hope that you can respect our request.

Our family and wills/probate solicitors will continue to offer initial advice for up to one hour (as advertised on this website) but by telephone only. Please call us if you would like to speak to one of our experts. If you have a case in court please telephone us so we can discuss representation.

We appreciate your patience, support and understanding. Stay safe and thank you for your co-operation.

What is Equity Transfer?

This is the transaction required in order to either add a name to or remove a name from the title deeds of a property. It is a reasonably straightforward transaction provided that all parties, including any Lender or Building Society, agree. It entails dealing with the client, any mortgage lender and the Land Registry, and includes the preparation of all relevant legal documentation. On occasion Stamp Duty Land Tax will be payable to HM Revenue and Customs.

How long does equity transfer take?

If all parties are in agreement, between two to three weeks, and subject to the issue of a mortgage offer (if required)
