Hi, thanks for your question. Changing from joint tenants to tenants in common is a relatively straightforward process and you can see the guidance here: https://www.gov.uk/joint-property-ownership/change-from-joint-tenants-to-tenants-in-commonHowever, you should also consider entering into a deed of trust to ensure that if there are any charges registered on the property in relation to his debt that it will only come from his share.If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page.
