Reasons For Transferring Equity

Most requirements will be from the four main reasons for considering transferring equity below. Each will carry its own particular private scenario but they generally come down to:

  • Marriage or cohabitation: If you are getting married and intend to move into the existing home of your spouse or vice versa, it may be that you want to transfer them onto the deeds of the property so that it can be jointly owned and perhaps release some funds at the same time.
  • Divorce or separation: If you are divorcing or separating from a partner, dividing your assets is important and a property is often the most significant asset involved - which means that transferring the property into a single name, or the name of a new partner can be a priority.
  • Tax purposes: Depending on the individual scenario people may consider a transfer of equity for tax efficiency. This could involve transferring some of the equity in a property to children or another family member .
  • Buying out the equity of a joint owner: A house / flat may have been bought with a colleague, friend or family either as their main home or as an investment property (such as a buy to let) and one of the parties wants to buy the other party out (or one party wants to come off the property).

Put simply, a transfer of equity is when someone is added or removed from the title deeds of a property. This also applies to the mortgage deed where there is a mortgage on the property. It can be done for a number of reasons and if you are considering transferring some of the equity in your property it is best to speak to an expertto make sure you can get it sorted hassle free.

Equity Transfer Definition

A transfer of equity is the legal process whereby the ownership of a share or interest in the property is transferred from one person to another, effectively changing the people who currently own the property. If there is no mortgage on the property this can be done right away and your main consideration should be how you want the property to be jointly owned. If you are unsure of the different types of ownership a solicitor will be able to help you decide the best course of action for your circumstance. If the property currently has a mortgage secured against it there are a few more hoops you have to jump through as the mortgage has to be changed as well because the person being removed from the property will no longer own the property or the equity in it, they will not want to be liable for any debts (mortgages or homeowner loans) secured against it. Contact our support team on one of the above numbers to speak to our experienced transfer advisers for a confidential conversation about your equity transfer needs with no obligation to proceed.

Transfer Of Equity Mortgage

Having a mortgage secured against a property doesn`t necessarily prohibit you from carrying out a transfer of equity it simply means that you have to have the mortgage amended to reflect the new owners. If you wish to remain with your current provider you will need to approach them for consent to amend the mortgage deed. This will often involve going through new affordability checks and a credit scoring process for them to establish if they are happy for it to go ahead, if they do not agree to the change you will not be able to transfer the equity in the property. Fortunately, staying with the same provider isn`t the only feasible solution. Approaching an intermediary like ourselves can often be an effective option as we can source the most suitable transfer of equity mortgage for those looking to be transferred onto the property, rather than trying to stay with a lender purely because they are the existing provider as this may not be the most competitive available.
