Moving out of the marital home

Posted on 8 October 2012 by Craig Wood


Hi, my ex partner and i have had a mortgage for the last four years. We are still living together but i will be moving out as soon as my name comes off the mortgage. She has said she will take it on and the mortgage company has said this is fine. Do i just need to see a solicitor and sign it over to her?

There will be legal papers for you to sign, but the answer is essentially 'yes'. If you require mortgage advice for any subsequent home you may be buying then please let me know, and I'll arrange for one of our consultants to contact you.
