It would be so I could get an owner occupier (normal) mortgage on one cottage and a buy to let mortgage on the other.
In the future I may wish to convert the 2 cottages into 1 large family home, so hence the option to make it one title deed in the future.
Thanks Tom - I am not sure the mortgage companies would consider mortgages BEFORE title deeds are actually split. What other terms would land registry consider splitting the deeds? What about if relatives lived in one cottage and I lived in the other? Thanks, Babette
