Quick guide to our residential property services

Transferring a share of property

Specialist help with transferring a share of your property
  • Advice on potential consequences, such as stamp duty land tax

    We’ll advise you on any unforeseen consequences which you may not have been expecting (such as a liability to pay stamp duty land tax, which can sometimes arise when transferring a share of property between co-owners).

  • Joint property ownership

    If you’re thinking about owning property jointly, our advice always is to give some thought to how you would want the sale proceeds to be divided between you should circumstances change and the property needs to be sold.

    A declaration of trust is a document that clarifies the position in respect of who is entitled to what after the sale. If you’re living together, you may wish to go further and have a more comprehensive cohabitation agreement- our family law team can provide expert assistance on this.

  • Fully-rounded, specialist legal advice

    We work closely with other teams when required, such as family law or wills trusts & probate, to provide a seamless service.

    We also work closely with our dispute resolution team in cases where co-owners have fallen out over a jointly owned property.
