Thanks for your question. I will try to help.
Are you selling part of the property to a buyer?
Thanks, ***** ***** answer now. 5 mins please.
If you are selling part of the title to a buyer then you do not need to worry about changing your name on the register or splitting the legal titles at this stage.
This is because this will all be dealt with by the solicitor that you instruct once you have agreed a sale.
Your solicitor will require you to provide them with your original Marriage Certificate so they can take a certified copy and provide the copy to the buyer. This will be sufficient for the buyer and the name does not need to be changed if this is done.
As to the splitting of the title, land registry will not split the titles before a sale has been completed because they are only obliged to do this once there has been a “disposition” which is either a sale or a mortgage. Your solicitor will prepare a Land Registry TP1 transfer of part form, which is the document which transfers part of your property to the buyer upon completion. The buyer will then submit this to land registry via their solicitor following completion so that land registry will then remove the part of the title that you have sold and then register it under a separate title number.
