Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hi, does your partner agree to this? Is there a Mortgage over the property? Kind Regards Al
Thanks for your reply.
Well, if you do instruct a Solicitor to deal with the Transfer of the one property into your name, you will be looking at around £350 plus VAT plus a Land Registry fee which will be between £40-£95 depending on the value of the property. I must say that unless you are familiar with Land Registry Forms and procedure, it is going to save you a lot of hassle.
If you do it yourself, you will need to print off a Land Registry Transfer document called a TR1, complete it and then both of you will need to sign it and have your signatures witnessed. You will then need to send the TR1 to the Land Registry with an application Form called an AP1. To combat fraud, any party who does not instruct a Solicitor also has to submit an ID1 Form, which is confirmation that your identity has been verified by a local Solicitor, who will need to sign the back of a recent passport photo of yourself and complete the ID1.
I hope this assists and sets out the legal position.

It is correct that, unless you both are prepared and able to deal with the paperwork personally, that you both instruct independent Solicitors. As you have separated, the same Solicitor won't be prepared to act for both of you.
