How does one as executor remove a departed person's name from the title register for a house in Fairfield?
If a Fairfield property is co-owned and one of the proprietors passes away, the name will not automatically be removed from the Land Registry title. You are not required to amend the title as when it comes to a sale you would simply be required to evidence why the other owner is missing from the transfer, such as a grant of probate.
With the aim of making the sale conveyancing smoother in the future you may apply to have the deceased name erased from the title entries by submitting an application to HMLR with evidence of the death. There is no land registry fee payable.
