Thank you for your question.
You have to convey the property from you to you and your wife. If you have a mortgage the consent of your lender is needed and the mortgage also has to be varied. The new deeds have to be registered in the Land Registry.
A solicitor will be required for this. However the cost is no more than a few hundred pounds and the procedure takes no more than a few days assuming you have the consent of any lender.
Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
