If a Old Stratford property is co-owned and one of the proprietors dies, their name will not automatically be removed from the title deeds. You are not required to amend the title as when it comes to a disposal your conveyancer would just be asked to supply proof why the joint proprietor is not included in the contract, such as a grant of probate.
