Customer Question
Both myself and my partner...
Both myself and my partner live in houses that we have joint mortgages with our exes. We are neither looking at selling properties and neither of our exes want any interest in the properties but we both want to close those chapters in our lives and get something legal in place to say our exes relinquish themselves of any interest in either of the propertiea

When you say exes where you married?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Neither of us were married to our exes! If we had been in may have been clearer and easier to deal with
Solicitor: Thomas Judge, Solicitor Advocate replied 2 years ago

In fact not being married does actually make it a lot easier. You need a drafted a couple of deeds of trust which will set out the ownership of the properties. It is a very straight forward document which would cost about £100-£150 plus VAT and would basically set out the ownership of the properties and would be resilient in law. Happy to discuss further but please rate positive. Thanks

A draft deeds of trust that then needs to be witnessed by a solicitor??
Please check your sentences as the answer you sent me really wasn't written in very good English!
Solicitor: Thomas Judge, Solicitor Advocate replied 2 years ago

My apologises. The deed of trust does not need to be witnessed by a solicitor, but it should be witnessed (ideally somebody independent). Happy to discuss but please rate positive. Thanks
