How do I transfer my registered land or property?
If you want to transfer registered land or property, you must use the correct form depending on whether you are transferring the whole or part of the actual land or property.
You will need to send us a completed form TR1, if you wish to transfer:
- the whole of the land/property
- a share of the property/land by adding someone to the ownership, for example, on marriage or civil partnership when the current owner(s) is transferring to themselves and their new partner
- a share of the property by removing someone from ownership, for example, when a relationship breaks down and one or more of the current owner(s) are transferring to the remaining owner(s)
- a share in the property/land by adding additional owners, for example when E and F want to add G and H to the ownership, so E and F transfer to E,F G and H,
- a share in a property, for example, when I J and K own the property/land and I no longer wants to be an owner so I, J and K transfer to J and K.
See explanatory notes for how to complete form TR1
If you are only selling part of a property/land, (called a 'Transfer of Part') rather then a share in the property/land, for example, you are selling part of your garden to a neighbour, or visa versa, you will need to complete and send us a form TP1.
For all types of transfer you will need to send us a completed form AP1 and, if a solicitor or conveyancer is not acting for you, a completed ID1 and/or ID2. For more details see When and why do I need to produce evidence of identity?
All forms are freely available on our website and are designed to be easy to complete.
You may also need to pay stamp duty land tax. Please contact the HM Revenue & Customs enquiry line on 0845 603 0135 for advice, or online at www.hmrc.gov.uk.
Transferring property can be complex, if you have a mortgage on your property your lender might insist that you use a solicitor or conveyancer.
Under our advisory policy we can give customers factual information and procedural advice about how the land registration system works and how to make an application, but we cannot provide legal advice. In view of the complexities of the law in relation to this matter you may wish to seek legal advice.
