Hi – any solicitors or anyone with a good knowledge of Land Registry on here?
I’m currently going through a divorce and have been attending mediation with my soon to be ex. We both own our home and he has agreed to sign over his share to me so I become the sole owner on the property and will take on the mortgage whilst he buys himself a property of his own. I did speak with the Land Registry and had some advice but now i am downloading forms from the .gov website I’m a little confused.
I have been advised I need an AP1 Application to change the register form, and a ID1 certificate of identity form. I’m confused if I need a TR1 Transfer of whole register form or a TP1 Transfer of part of registered title form. I’m guessing it’s a TP1 form that I need, but read somewhere else that I may need to send up a JO form also, which looking at it and its wording surely would have been completed when we first bought the house?
I have a Title Deed Register Extract, what else do I need to send up with the paperwork?
