Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi, you need to apply for a copy of your Land Registry Deeds, called "Official Copies", which you can do online by logging onto the Land Registry website- details here https://www.gov.uk/guidance/land-registry-portal-how-to-request-official-copies
If there is a Restriction in the Proprietorship Register with the following wording, then you hold the property as Tenants in common, meaning that you both own a separate share in the property, which share can be left to a third party in your Will.
"No disposition by a sole proprietor of the registered estate (except a trust corporation) under which capital money arises is to be registered unless authorised by an order of the court".
If there is no Restriction, then you hold the property as Joint tenants, meaning that the property would automatically pass to the survivor on the first death.
I hope this answers your question. If so, I would be grateful if you could rate my answer in the top right hand corner of your screen.
Kind Regards Al
