Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.
I am Al and am happy to assist you with your enquiry.
Can I ask why the paperwork wasn't dealt with within the divorce? Was a Consent Order, confirming that your ex wife transfer the property to you drawn up at the time of your divorce?
Do you have a Mortgage on the property?
I look forward to hearing from you.
We were seperated for years and then my wife took out divorce proceedings that I did not object to. We had the home valued and I gave her half the value. I do not now have a mortgage. The property is mine and at the time of our divorce we did not think about the deeds.
Thanks for your reply.
Well, you will need your ex wife to sign a Transfer document, transferring the property to you.
You will need her signature to legally change the Deeds, so you will need to contact her.
A local Conveyancing Solicitor will be able to request your Deeds from the B Society and prepare the Transfer. Once signed, the Transfer will need to be registered at the Land Registry, to enable the legal ownership of the property to be transferred into your sole name.
I hope this assists and sets out the legal position.
