  • Giving Property to Spouse (under court consent order - Divorce)

    Hi

    We have several properties which all of my equitable interest is to be given to my spouse.

    On the jointly owned properties, this is a straightforward transfer of equity and no SDLT has been payable.

    Now, we seem to have hit a problem. One of the properties is in my sole name and there is a mortgage on the property of £180k (property value is around £360k).

    We understand from the accountant there is no CGT to pay between husband and wife, but if my spouse has to raise a mortgage, so that I am released from the property - would SDLT be payable? And just to repeat the heading above, the equity is being given to spouse as per Court Consent Order.

    Many thanks.

    Thank you. I had looked at some guidance pages on the gov.uk site but hadn't seen this. Yes, it certainly looks the way. Many thanks.

    Hi,
    a rather late reply but its taken this long to get over the line.
    I checked others leases obtained from Land Registry and they were all the same, notice only specified in writing, nothing else.
    In between they wrote asking again for the notice to be sent (via solicitor) or would...

  • Remortgaging to a BTL so much to pay!

    My wife and I are in the process of remortgaging our home to a BTL and buying a new home.

    I've been in discussions with a mortgage advisor for the last couple of weeks. The purchase mortgage is straight forward but the BTL mortgage is proving a bit more difficult to decide upon. We...

    What is the research provided by your broker in focusing on BM Solutions , they are no longer a lender who is the automatic 1st choice

    Ask your broker why he didn't quote the following:-
    Santander 1.39% 27 months fixed including Free Legals
    Barclays 1.41% 27 months fixed including...

    Thank JP, yeah i was thinking we should fix for longer but if landlording doesn't work out we will have to pay big early repayment charges if we sell.

    The lender our broker has recommended (BM Solutions) pays £300 casback on legal fees. Our solicitor is quoting almost a grand so thats...

    Most BTL mortgage lenders will use their own solicitor for conveyancing at no (direct) cost to the lender).
    You usually can add the product fee to the amount borrowed - on the basis that you hope the property value increases by at least that.

    While I appreciate that landlording may...

    We are buying a property built in 1847, with some interesting history, and are somewhat frustrated by the both our own solicitor and the vendor and their solicitor.

    Since having our offer accepted, on a house with no chain, either end, it has been 16 weeks, but the last 4 weeks have been...

    So eventually I phoned the Estate agent and explain that I'm now being told by our solicitor that the vendors solicitor had put in this application, but I'd like proof, if that were possible.
    30 mins later she sent an email, which had an email.from.their solicitor saying it had been done on the...

    I'm read these forums for a little while and just signed up to ask a quick question. I'm not sure if this is 8n 5he right place.

    So I bought a property in 2008 and discovered that the Title to my property was defective in 2015. Basically there was a piece of land on the title of my property...

    Are you saying that the Land Registry plan does not match the apparent boundaries of the land you occupy? If so, is the problem that you occupy land not shown as yours on the plan or that a neighbour occupies land shown as yours on the plan?
