We work in partnership with our Private Client and Family Team to ensure you receive a complete service. We prepare transfers of property following settlements on divorce or separation which must be completed within fixed timescales. We subsequently attend to the registration of the transfer with land registry and file any required returns for Stamp Duty Land Tax or, if in Wales, Land Transaction Tax.
Clients are often advised to transfer property for estate planning and tax saving purposes. Following an instruction from you or one of the teams within Myerson we will deal with the transfer, registration and stamp duty or land tax returns.
We also prepare transfers of property where another person is being added to a title and/or mortgage and again we have the experience to draft the transfer with necessary additional provisions to protect the existing owner and lender.
