Tax and Legal
There may be various tax and legal implications when transferring equity for your property. You should always seek the advice of a solicitor on the Barnsley Building Society conveyancing panel and accountant before transferring equity.
Transfer of Equity Conveyancing for Leasehold titles
If your property is leasehold, the lease may have a requirement for notices to be served and that you have a license to do so from the landlord. If such conditions are not complied with you may be in violation of your covenants under the lease. This could potentially result in the freeholder taking enforcement action against you.
If the transfer of equity is made pursuant to an Order of the Court, then Insolvency Indemnity Insurance is not required. In other situations, where a property is being transferred at less than market value between joint owners, an Insolvency Act Indemnity Insurance policy may be required. This is something that that your lawyer will check with Barnsley Building Society This is because, if the outgoing party is made bankrupt in the future, their Trustee in Bankruptcy could argue that they had transferred the property in order to avoid their creditors and apply to the Court to have the transaction set aside. If this happens, it could affect your lender or a future buyer from you as they would lose the property and the lender may not get back
what they have loaned to you. The Insolvency Act Indemnity Insurance policy only protects
lenders such as Barnsley Building Society or future buyers from you. If there is no mortgage and the outgoing owner is made bankrupt, there is a risk to you that you could lose your home if the transfer is set aside. The cost of the Insolvency Act Indemnity Insurance policy is dependent on the market value of the property at the conclusion of the transfer of equity transaction.
