Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.
My name is ***** ***** am happy to assist you with your enquiry.
Do you know if the land in question is registered at the Land Registry, and if so, does it form part of a whole Title or is it just part of a larger section of land that you own?
Is there a Mortgage on the land?
I look forward to hearing from you.
Just small part of my large garden. There is no mortgage on my
Well, it is quite straight forward, other than you will need a Surveyor to prepare a Land Registry compliant Plan, showing the dimensions of the land you intend to gift.
Once this has been prepared, you would need to instruct a local Conveyancing Solicitor to prepare the Land Registry Transfer document (with Plan attached to it), which will need to be signed by you, and which will then need to be registered at the Land Registry.
Your Solicitor is likely to charge approx £200-£300 plus VAT for this work, and there will be a Land Registry Registration fee of approx £40. You would need to check with your Solicitor that he would be happy to act for your Son also.
I hope this assists and answers your question.
