    Change of name? 20th Mar 17 at 11:50 AM
    Not sure whether this is the correct section?
    I would like to add a name to my house deeds/ownership, in other words, the house is in my name and I would like to add my wife's name to it, any advice appreciated, thank you.

    If there is no mortgage or other charges against the property, you can just fill a form in with the Land Registry.

    and if there IS a mortgage, you'll need the lender's consent, and need to use (& pay) their solicitor.
