What is an equity transfer?
Transferring equity means to add a person from a mortgage when remortgaging. The process involves the changing of legal ownership of the property and therefore requires a solicitor.
A solicitor will amend the deeds of ownership and draw up new paperwork stating how you will now own the property.
How much does transferring equity cost?
It will cost an estimated £660 including VAT to transfer equity with TRUE. A full breakdown can be found on our Transferring equity fees page.
