Transferring equity in Corsham

Will I need a solicitor in order to transfer equity in my Corsham property?

A 'transfer of equity' will be required if the ownership structure of the Corsham property needs to be changed, or if the property is being given (gifted) to a child or relative. The legal process of transferring equity is different to the purchase or sale of the whole property. Your conveyancing solicitors can carry out the legal work for you for a guaranteed fixed fee. If you intend to remortgage at the same time as the transfer, we can complete the remortgage legal work in parallel.
