Severing Joint Tenancies

If you wish to change from joint tenants to tenants in common then contact our experienced team to guide you through the process.

Tenancy Solicitors

If property is held as joint tenants there is a presumption in law that the parties hold the property equally and that if either party dies their share will pass to the survivor regardless of what provisions have been made in their Will.

It is the duty of the conveyancing solicitor to discuss with the purchaser whether holding the property as Tenants in Common would be more appropriate whereby the distinct shares in the property can be bequeathed to another beneficiary but circumstances change in people’s lives and what once might have made sense given their current situation is no longer what is required.

We can help with this predicament and make the necessary arrangements to sever the title and register the change with the Land registry.

In some cases, parties refuse to consent to the severance but that too can be overcome.
