Transfer of Equity

Transfer the equity in your home with expert personalised legal and tax advice from our independent experts

When you transfer equity, you actively add or remove a person from the title deeds of a property, thereby altering its ownership.

Such changes can occur for various reasons, and are often personal. For example, they may be prompted by marriage, separation or the desire to give a share in the property to children or grandchildren. Some transfers could help mitigate inheritance tax.

To make sure you receive appropriate legal guidance and that all your individual circumstances and options are duly considered, it is essential to seek the advice of a residential property lawyer.
