Joint Ownership
Residential Property Conveyancing

When two or more people buy a property it is important for them to think about how they will own the property. This includes:

  • whether they have equal or unequal shares,
  • what happens to their respective interests upon death,
  • what happens if there is a separation and
  • what happens if one of the joint owners wishes to sell and the other doesn’t.

People sometimes prefer not to think about what will happen if the relationship between the owners deteriorates, or if things don’t turn out as planned. At Julie West Solicitor, we encourage potential joint owners to think things through before buying and we take time to explain the various options available to you.

A simple Declaration of Trust need not be expensive. Because it prevents uncertainty it can save you thousands of pounds in Court costs, in the event of a dispute.
