The original solicitor has got time, they just don’t want to deal with it, for whatever reason.
It’s not just a case of sending the deed off to the land registry, you have to fill some forms in.
The process is not for the fainthearted although it’s not an uncommon question and therefore I have a standard cut-and-paste answer which is below: a solicitor would probably charge under GBP500 plus VAT plus the land registry fee:
To transfer property from 2 names to 1 name or from 1 name to 2 names or to simply sell a You need AP1
for all the parties involved.
There needs to be one of the latter forms for each person involved. It needs a passport sized photograph certified by a solicitor as being a true likeness. This is not needed if solicitors are doing the job but the solicitors will want different ID, usually a passport or driving licence and 1 or 2 utility bills.
There is also the Land Registry fee based upon the value of the house which is here:
Use scale 1 fees.
If there is a mortgage on the property they will need to consent to the grant of the easement.
