Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.
My name is ***** ***** am happy to assist you with your enquiry.
Was this document to sever your joint tenancy of your property? If so, did the Will writer register the Restriction at the Land Registry, to show you are both now holding the property as Tenants in common?
I look forward to hearing from you.
Yes it was to sever the joint tenancy and no he did not register it with the land registry
Thanks for your reply.
Although the Deed is evidence that you both wish to hold the property as tenants in common, the appropriate application still needs to be made to the Land Registry, so that the title can be formally amended. You should therefore attend to this as soon as possible, as it does need to be done before you can be recognised as being Tenants in common.
Your Will writer therefore has only done half a job for you.
I hope this assists and sets out the legal position, but please let me know if I can be of any more assistance.
Can I assist you any further?
If not, I would be grateful if you could rate my answer.
