Hi, Thank you. Your son is owner of the beneficial interest in the property form the date you sign. He will be legal owner when the property is formerly registered. Accordingly the transfer may not binding on your successors in title - for example if you went bankrupt before the transfer is complete it may cause you an issue - and your creditors may be able to claim the property. Are you purchasing the freehold under Leasehold Reform Housing and Urban Development Act 1993? If so can you not just assign the right to your son?
