How long does transfer of equity take?

The time it takes to complete the equity transfer process can vary based on why the equity is being transferred. A straightforward transfer of equity may involve a property with no mortgage to pay. In such an instance, the process may be concluded quite quickly. Once the signed transfer of equity deed has been received, then assuming there is no mortgage or money to exchange, the process may only take a few weeks.

The transfer of equity process can take longer when an active mortgage is involved, because the bank or lender will need to give the go-ahead. There are certain steps that must be taken  when a lender is involved. Additionally, in more complicated scenarios, such as during a divorce, the process can take several months due to the need for additional legal negotiations and considerations.

Will I have to pay Stamp Duty or Land Transaction Tax?

In general, if money is changing hands as part of the transfer or if there is a mortgage involved, Stamp Duty (in England) or Land Transaction Tax (in Wales) will apply. However, exemptions or reduced rates might be applicable in certain situations, such as transfers between spouses or civil partners.

It is important to seek up-to-date transfer of equity advice and all the relevant information in terms of possible exemptions or reductions. Our transfer of equity solicitors and legal advisors in Swansea will ensure all appropriate taxes are paid, avoiding any confusion.

What if I plan to remortgage?

When remortgaging, you will either need to contact your current lender to arrange a new product or possibly change to a new mortgage provider. A Financial Advisor will be able to guide you on the best options available for you.

JCP Solicitors will ensure compliance with all legal obligations, helping you to make informed decisions aligned with your financial circumstances. It is important to understand the remortgaging process and to seek the guidance of professional financial and legal advisers.
