My mother wishes to add me and my sister to the title deeds

Resolved Question:

My mother wishes to add me and my sister to the title deeds of her house, so that all 3 names are ***** ***** title deeds. There is no mortgage on the house. What forms do we need to fill out? And is it essential for a solicitor/conveyancer to verify IDs, documents etc as we are trying to save time and money or can we do this whole process by ourselves. Thanks

Hi
Then your starting point is to obtain up to date Office Copy Entries from the Land Registry

You will need to prepare a TR1

and an AP1

You will need a solicitor to deal with the ID forms

But other than that you can deal with the matter yourself
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
