For centuries, there has been a system in place to keep a record of deeds for all registered common law land transactions. It’s essential that records are kept up to date and that official documentation is obtained when titles change or alter.
Titles for Marriages or Deaths
One of the most common reasons for needing to alter or change titles is when a person marries, or if a person dies. It’s really important that you give notice to any changes in the details relating to the parties that are registered on the title as early as possible. This will ensure that records will always be up to date and accurate, should anything happen in the future.
How To Go About the Registration Process
The documents and processes are often confusing to the untrained eye and it can be helpful to seek expert advice. Not only will you have the peace of mind that you’re placing an important job in expert hands, but you’ll probably save large amounts of time you’d otherwise have spent pouring over forms and possibly making errors.
You can employ expert help to request the registration details on the title to the land to be updated on your behalf as and when required.
Other reasons for changing the details on a title can include:
- The recent purchase of a property
- Remortgaging a property
- Taking full ownership of a property after completing a final mortgage repayment
- Correcting the name and address on a title
Where To Register
If you do decide to take on the Registration of Titles for Marriages or Deaths yourself, there are a variety of ways to do so. You’ll need to download the forms which are available online and you can then lodge the documents either in person at the correct offices, or by post.
