The Law ofProperty Act 1925 lays down a specific procedure for transfer of land whichmust be evidenced in writing, signed by the parties, and must be by deed. Thedeed must be witnessed and "delivered".
Once the transferdeed has been signed (which, in this case will also need a plan) it then needsto be registered at the land registry.
If your neighbourhas a mortgage, then the lender must consent to this and the lender mustdischarge their mortgage over the piece of land which has been given to you.
Unless you haveexperience of land transfers and conveyancing, this is really not a do ityourself job and a solicitor will probably charge you about £500 plus VAT plusthe land registry fee. It really is about as much do it yourself job as takingyour own appendix out
