Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hello, and thank you for your question. I am your Expert and I will provide the answer you require.
1. You essentially get the solicitor who is handling the purchase on the part of your daughter to register a charge over the property in your favour. This would be done as part of the conveyancing process when the purchase is taking place. If your daughter is agreeable to this course of action, you can use the same solicitor. However, if your daughter is not so keen on it, you will have to use your own solicitor and get the charge registered over the property when your daughter purchases. Be aware that part of the registration of a charge (in England you register a charge, not a lien) the interest must be entered in the Land Registry to protect you upon any sale of the property. So, for this reason, you need to ensure it is done properly. So, if there is any doubt, you should employ your own solicitor to ensure this is done.

3. Then, what you should do is employ a solicitor to register the charge on the property for you by registering it in the Land Registry. Be aware that you will need your daughter to sign papers to say that she got the money as part of the registration process. The solicitor will remove the ex husband from the title Folio and register your charge on the property as well, as part of one process, whilst registering the Title Folio in your daughter's sole name.
