Transfer of Equity Solicitors

A transfer of equity transaction alters the shares between owners of a property, and it usually involves adding or removing a person from the records that are held at the land registry. There are many reasons as to why our clients may choose to do this, but the most common include:

For tax purposes: Homeowners sometimes transfer equity to another family member or to a different company to be more tax-efficient. If you are considering this option, we strongly recommend that you take financial advice from a qualified and insured tax advisor as the rules can be extremely complex.

If you are adding an extra owner: This may be due to a new relationship or for other family reasons. On some occasions it may be that money is being paid for the share or sometimes it is being given as a gift.

When buying out the equity of a joint owner: This may be due to the breakdown of a relationship, or simply to buy out a friend or family member that helped you get on the ladder in the first place.
