We own a second property outright, that is in my wifes name

Resolved Question:

We own a second property outright, that is in my wifes name only. Does changing this to any kind of joint names , normal or tenants in common, require 'conveyancing' in any form?

Hi, thank you for your question. Yes, there will be some straightforward conveyancing forms required in order to transfer ownership from sole owner to joint owner. You can see the guidance here: https://www.gov.uk/registering-land-or-property-with-land-registry/transfer-ownership-of-your-property
