Can Quittance help with a transfer of equity on my Burnham On Crouch home?

A 'transfer of equity' will be necessary if the ownership of a residential property needs to be changed with at least one current owner remaining on the title. A transfer will also be required 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 conveyancing solicitors can carry out the legal work on the transfer for an all-inclusive fixed fee. If you will also be remortgaging, the legal work for the remortgage can be completed at the same time as the transfer.
