Timing a change of Title

Posted on 5 April 2011 by Jenny Goldthorpe


I want to add my boyfriend to my mortgage / property deeds which are currently in my sole name.  He is going to put some equity into the property.  Is it cheaper to do this now or wait until I am due to remortgage in August 2012?

Jenny,

I have referred your enquiry to our in house solicitors, Rollingsons and you can expect to hear back from them by e mail in the near future.

You need to bare in mind that the free legal packages offered by Lenders as part of their remortgage products do not cover the cost of any additional work, such as changing the property title and you would be billed separately for this.
