Thanks for your question.
To enable me to answer your question could you please respond to the following:-
You will have to draft a Transfer (form TR1) from you (in your married name) to your and your husbanr (which you will both have to sign as a deed (ie. witnessed) and you can download the template form from the land registry's website. You will have to submit this to the land registry with their form AP1, this is also downloadable from the website
by selecting from the "Forms" tab:-
You will have to send a copy of your marriage certificate with the AP1 form as well as the LR's fee (it should be £50.00)
You will probably have some questions on completing the form but the land registry's customer support service are very helpful to lay persons. A fee will be required and you can also ask them about that.
Please be advised though that you will be relinquishing half your rights in the property and he will gain rights of ownership so you couldn't evict him if you wanted to.
You will have to designate on the TR1 form if you wish to hold your interests as tenants in common (where upon death the interest passes according to the person's Will) or as joint tenants (where upon death the interest passes automatically to the other owner). You will also have to both complete Land Registry ID1 forms by going to a local solicitor to certify.
If this has been useful please kindly click accept so that I may be rewarded for my efforts. It will be gratefully received and you will be free to ask follow up questions.Kind regards,Tom
