Registered title(s): whole transfer (TR1) Form
The Registered title(s): whole transfer (TR1) Form is an HM Land Registry (HMLR) form completed when either:
- The whole title of a property is transferred
- A property is being registered for the first time e.g. a new build property
If only part of a property is being transferred (e.g. when transferring equity) a 'Transfer of Whole Registered Title(s)' or 'TP1 ' form will need to be completed in place of the TR1.
The TR1 is usually completed by a seller’s conveyancing solicitor during the conveyancing process.
The TR1 is then signed by the seller between exchange of contracts and completion.
The TR1 must be signed for completion to occur. In practice, most conveyancing solicitors ask for the TR1 to be signed before exchange of contracts.
The TR1, TR2, TR3 and TP1 forms are often referred to as the ‘property transfer deeds’.
