Deceased joint proprietor (DJP) form
The Deceased joint proprietor form, or DJP form, is the form you would use when notifying HM Land Registry that one of the joint owners of a property has died.
This form can only be used when there is still at least one surviving owner of the property. The DJP form will remove the name of the deceased person from the property's registered title.
You will also need to send an official copy of the death certificate when you send in this form to the Land Registry.
