    TP1 - Can I Do This Myself 10th Oct 17 at 11:39 AM
    Mortgage free property. Currently in my name only. I will be getting married soon and want to add my husband's name to the deeds.

    I've had a look at the TP1 form and it looks fairly straightforward. Can I do this myself or is there any reason I might need a conveyancing solicitor to do it for me?

    You don't want a TP1 !

    That is a Transfer of Part - you are not splitting the property up, you are transferring the Whole property into 2 names.

    you need a TR1

    Yes you can DIY. see

    Based on the fact that I'd have completed the wrong form, do I need a conveyancer?

    Or now I have the right form, can I do it myself.. :sheepish:

    If you are reasonably literate and intelligent, and can follow instructions, read the guide in the link I gave you and DIY.

    TR1
    ID1 (to confirm your ID)
    AP1 (applcation form)

    Great. I see there's a video so there must be a demand for people to do it themselves.

    Many thanks.

    So you’re talking about a transaction worth a few hundred grand and you don’t want to spend a couple of hundred quid to get it right?

    Don't be put off by gax.

    I assume there is no money involved, and I further assume the marriage is sound.

    So it's just a paper excercise. The worst that can hapen is that you mess up the paperwork and the Land Registry send it back to you to do again!

    Yes, a paper exercise to make our wills (which we are having written by a professional) more straightforward.

    Thanks.

    Make sure you understand (and decide) on the difference between owning as JTs Vs TIC.

    Yes, I think we'll be Tenants In Common as I will be leaving my half of the property to my son with my husband having a lifetime interest. He'll be leaving his half to his sister with me having a lifetime interest.

    I'm his first wife and he'll be my last husband..
