The need to Transfer Ownership of a Property can arise in a number of situations.
- If you own Property jointly with someone else then on their death it may be necessary to transfer the Property into the name of the Survivor.In some cases ownership will pass automatically, but in other situations transfer to the other home owner will not be automatic and the Property may need to be dealt with under a Will or Intestacy Provisions (if someone died without making a Will);
- If couples separate then one partner may seek to ‘buy the other out’ so that they become the Sole Owner;
- You may wish to “gift” a property to someone else, either a family member of a loved one.
