Transfer of Equity

Transfer of Equity

A transfer of property involves changing the legal owners of a property. It’s essential that you get expert legal advice when transferring title and/or equity as it can result in a notable change in circumstances for you and anyone else involved.

Our Property & Conveyancing specialists can support you to explore the option of equity transfer in the following circumstances:

Marriage. If you are getting married, or entering into a civil partnership, you may wish to share ownership.

Divorce or separation. You may wish to remove a name from the title deeds when a relationship ends.

Tax planning. It may be beneficial to share ownership with children or other family members, in order to mitigate future inheritance tax liabilities.

Forming a Trust. You may wish to protect property assets on behalf of a loved one who has difficulty managing their own finances.

Change of circumstances. You may wish to realign shares of a co-owned property, or buy out a co-owner.


A transfer of equity typically takes approximately 4 – 6 weeks but this is dependent on several factors. We will be able to give a clearer estimate on discussion of your case.
