OUR PRICING

If you own a property with someone and you want to change your ownership from joint tenants to tenants in common, we can assist you with this.

We will charge you a fixed fee of £72.00 inclusive of VAT. If you instruct us together with your spouse or partner, we will charge you a fixed fee of £84.00 inclusive of VAT.

This will cover the cost of:

  • Advising you on the implications of severing your joint tenancy;
  • Taking your instructions;
  • Preparing the severance papers;
  • Assisting you with the severance procedure;
  • Registering the severance with the Land Registry; and
  • Sending you copies of the official copy of register of title thereafter.

There will also be fees to pay to the Land Registry of £23.00.

In most cases, this process takes approximately two weeks from beginning to end.

If you own a property on trust (either for someone else or for yourself and another) we can assist you with the preparation, execution and registration of a Declaration of Trust. We will charge you a fixed fee of £180.00 inclusive of VAT.

This will cover the cost of:

  • Taking your instructions;
  • Advising you on the implications of the Declaration of Trust;
  • Preparing a draft Declaration of Trust and sending it for your approval;
  • Engrossing your Declaration of Trust;
  • Assisting you with the execution of your Declaration of Trust;
  • Returning your executed Declaration of Trust to you for safekeeping;
  • Advising you on the cancellation of your Declaration of Trust, if desired; and
  • Registering a copy of your executed Declaration of Trust with the Land Registry.

In most cases, this process takes approximately two to four weeks from beginning to end.
