    Deed of trust - Land Registry RX3 - RX4


    we are currently tenants in common (husband and wife) and are putting the house back to beneficial joint tenancy.

    we have filled out form RX3 and are totally stuck with the following

    The completed form must be supported by either:

    a certified copy of the new (or amended) trust deed showing that everyone with a share or interest in the property agrees to the change, or
    a certified copy of the transfer showing that all the owners of shares transfer their shares to all the beneficial joint tenants, or
    a certificate given by a conveyancer that a deed in one of the forms referred to above has been entered into by all the parties.

    The supporting evidence must confirm that:

    together all of you own all of the shares in the property and no one else owns any other share in the property
    none of you has mortgaged any individual share
    none of you is bankrupt
    none of you has a creditor with a charging order against any share, and
    you all now hold the property as beneficial joint tenants.
    We don't have trust deeds new or otherwise, we own our house outright and have never signed anything.

    can anyone shed any light on what we are supposed to give ?

    Or would it be better to send form RX4 - which allows withdrawal of a restriction. (not sure what the difference is between a cancel or withdrawal of a restriction|)

    I don't see why we have to spend ££s on solicitors fees, on something we own, and both want

    any advice - help ?

    From what you say it sounds as if you started off as joint tenants. If so, how did you become tenants-in-common?


      Hi we split it many years ago - inheritance tax reasons, but the reasons have changed, so want it changed back


        a certified copy of the new (or amended) trust deed showing that everyone with a share or interest in the property agrees to the change,
        Compose a simple document stating that you both agree to revert to a joint tenancy. That's all we did when my wife and I also went back to a joint tenancy after the Inheritance Tax limits were changed.

        Don't be put off by the words "trust deed" it's not that complicated.

          Have you checked the freehold title and site plan are correct ? Both items can be purchased for £3 each by credit card and downloaded from Land Registry Online ?

          Is your company buying the freehold title without mortgage ? What is the reason for such a large difference in price...

          Go to a really good solicitor not some conveyancing bucketshop where your work will be handled by someone less than an expert. I think given that the executors are seized of both the freehold and a fifty year lease they can extend the leasehold interest by simple deed, transferring years to the lease...

          If the leasehold flat has only 50 years unexpired remaining , it should be given a statutory 90 years lease extension before putting on the market for sale or the buyer cannot get a mortgage and seller cannot get the highest sale price.

          The sale is not by a resident landlord, its by the...

          Being a public right of way doesn't mean that you don't own it. We are not even necessarily talking about adopted status here. Extinguishing a right of way is not the same as getting adverse possession. (In particular, blocking a public right of way is a criminal offence, whereas fencing off land...

          We bought our house in 1998 and at that time there was a public pathway between our garden and the neighbour's which lead from the street to the canal running at the end of the garden. I learnt that when the houses were built in 1980 the plan was to build a bridge across the canal at the end of the...

          Imho, as the owner was leaving in the property, and the lease reverted to the freehold there is probably no right of 1st refusal but it is all depends on the price

          Im not sure if I am in the right part of the forum.

          Im a leaseholder of a ground floor flat and the owner of the first floor flat has passed away. It’s going on the market for sale soon and I’ve told them I’m interested in purchasing it.

          the flat...

          If you have owned your house since 1998, its over 12 years and you qualify to start a claim by adverse possession.
