    Husband and I seperating on good terms 10th Oct 16 at 1:51 PM
    Can anyone offer advice please. Husband and i are seperating, on good terms. Hubby has name on title deeds of our home. The home is mortgage free and an endowment policy is due in November which hubby will take and i will give him some more. He said to get the title deeds changed into my name and he will relinquish all ties with the house. I will get in touch with land registry. Do we need to use a solicitor

    Most certainly yes. Formalities need to be dealt with properly. Avoids any unforeseen issues at a later date. Will make the break clean.
    Financial disasters happen when the last person who can remember what went wrong last time has left the building.

    If your question is simply about the practicalities of transferring ownership of the property - then no.

    * TR1
    * AP1
    * ID1

    Complete and send to Land Registry. See

    However if you need advice on the wider implications of the divorce settlement, and on how to ensure there are ot future claims/counterclaims over finance, property etc, then yes a solicitor is advisable.
