Where a Rhiwbina property is jointly owned and one of the owners dies, the name will not automatically be removed from the title deeds. It is not necessary to remove their name as in the event of a sale your conveyancer would just be asked to supply proof why the other owner is not included in the conveyance, normally this takes the form of a grant of probate.

With the aim of making the sale conveyancing simpler for the sale of the property you may arrange to have the deceased name removed from the title register by applying to the land registry with proof of the death. There is no fee from the Registry for this service.
