Will I need a solicitor if I am transferring equity in my Burnham home?
A 'transfer of equity' will be required if the ownership structure of the Burnham property needs to be changed, but at least one of the current owners will remain on the title, or if the property is being gifted to a child or relative. The legal process of transferring equity differs from an outright purchase or sale. Your solicitor can carry out the legal process for you for a guaranteed fixed fee. If you will also be remortgaging, this can be completed at the same time as the transfer.
