I confirm that I do not have a mortgage on the property

Expert:  Aston Lawyer replied 2 years ago.

Thanks Georgina.

Well, the procedure is pretty straight forward. It would be normal for you to instruct a local Conveyancing Solicitor to prepare a Land Registry Transfer document, which is then signed by you and your sister. The Transfer is then registered at the Land Registry, and your Deeds will then be altered to show you both are joint legal owners.

Your Solicitor is likely to charge approx £300 plus VAT for this work and there would also be a Land Registry fee of between £20-£100, based on the valuation of your property.

I hope this helps but please let me know if you require any clarification.

Kind Regards

Al

Hi Georgina,

Can I be of any more assistance to you?

you have not told me anything that I didn't already know, I was hoping for more positive answer i.e. what documents would be required for completion. In a 2 minute call to the Land Registry I have now obtained the information, including the fact that by dealing directly with them I will save myself a large amount of money.
