What is a transfer of equity in commercial property?

A transfer of equity is a legal process where the ownership of a property changes. This change can involve various scenarios, such as when joint owners decide to transfer the property into the sole name of one owner or when a sole owner introduces another owner to the title. 

Unlike a sale or purchase, a transfer of equity is typically more straightforward since the involved parties already know the property, reducing the need for extensive searches or inquiries. While a contract is usually unnecessary, complications may arise when the property is under a mortgage, requiring the lender's consent for the transfer.

What are the reasons for the transfer of equity?

There are several common reasons for a transfer of equity. In cases of new relationships or marriages, a sole owner may transfer a share of the property to their partner or spouse. Another scenario is during relationship breakdowns, where a property is transferred from joint names to the sole name of one party following a separation or divorce. This transfer might be part of a court order addressing asset distribution. In a business arrangement, you may transfer equity to remove someone from the title. 

Lastly, transfers of equity are also common for tax planning purposes. Property ownership may be shifted to a third party, such as a family member, to mitigate tax liabilities or ensure the property's continuity within the family. 


 

Do I need a solicitor to do a transfer of equity?
