If a property is owned jointly by two people, and one of the names needs to be removed from the Title, you will need professional assistance to sort out the paperwork. This typically happens following a divorce or separation. A Court Order is made by the Family Court as part of the financial settlement in a divorce or separation.
If the property is not sold and is kept by one of the parties, this involves transferring the Title from one spouse to another or from joint names to one name. In times like this, it is important that you speak with a Settlement Agent and/or your lawyer. Proper advice can save you a significant amount of money in government charges.
