WHEN DO I NEED TO CHANGE OWNER ON LAND REGISTRY?

You must tell HM Land Registry when you change the registered owner of your property, for example, if you’re transferring it into another person’s name, or if you want to add your partner as a joint owner, or if you’re transferring ownership of a property without selling it, for example as part of an inheritance.

What can I do if a property is left to me in a will?
If the deceased owned a property in their sole name Probate will generally be needed before it can be sold or transferred.

If Probate is needed, the property can be put on the market and an offer can be accepted before the Grant of Probate has been obtained, but the sale won’t be able to complete without the Grant.

We would always recommend obtaining the Grant of Probate prior to exchanging contracts. Exchanging contracts without Probate would only be possible on the basis that Probate is granted in time for completion, and this inevitably carries a high level of risk.

Are you looking at selling your home? You might be curious as to what certificates you may need to sell the property. In this scenario we go through title deeds and whether you need them to sell your home or whether you can get away without them.

*£499 is our Standard Land Registry Fee, there are extra fees for some properties of the value is £500,00 or more. Your specialist will inform you about these if they are required during your initial meeting or telephone call.
