Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a solicitor based in London. I’ll be happy to assist you with your question.
Expert:  Alice H replied 1 year ago.
When you say 'split' do you mean everything 50/50 or that one persons gets some buildings and the other person gets something else?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Not 50/50. One of us would get the large house, associated gardens, some outbuildings and land and the other (me) smaller house, associated garden, some outbuildings and land. Land split 50/50.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I am not anticipating needing a mortgage but my friend may.
Expert:  Alice H replied 1 year ago.
But will everything be split 50/50? So that you will be joint owners?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No, the existing property will be split into a larger property, a smaller property and everything else ie. Outbuildings and land 50/50.
