Think it’s free if no money changes hands and there is no mortgage involved, just get the form from the LR and fill it in

Hey bazz,

It's not that simple, I'm afraid - especially if there is a mortgage over the house as your mortgage company will require the registered owners of the property to be tied into the mortgage.

Its called a Transfer of Equity and needs to be done via solicitors...My old firm used to do them for about 250 pluz VAT, but that was a while ago.

Yes my sister did it and it cost her 250.

Can it be done through online solicitors? I did that to save money on our divorce.

Im sure a solicitor or similar will cheerfully relieve you of 250 to do the job but I did it a few years ago using (I think) form TR1, a few questions I had were answered over the phone by the LR. I filled the form in and sent if off with a tiny fee. Job done.

But, as I said previously, this doesnt apply if money is changing hands or a mortgage is involved.

Think this was the form

OP, ring the land registry and ask is probably best

How about changing your own name? I got married and need to change, I could add hubby but he doesn;t mind if not, there is no mortgage on it.

Go to the horses mouth, I found the land registry staff were really helpful (and they probably have plenty of time on their hands at the moment)

Same way, get transfer forms from the Land registry and send them off with the fee.

I recently changed the name on mine & it was free. However there is a mortgage on it & the building society informed the land registry automatically once I'd changed my name with them.

So ignore me.... :0/
