Should the tenure of your property be leasehold, the lease may require that you have a license to do so from the freeholder. If such conditions are not strictly observed you may be in violation of the lease. This could trigger the freeholder taking enforcement action against you.
If the transfer of equity is made as a result of 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 New Street Mortgages 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 New Street Mortgages 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 varies based on the market value of the property at finalisation of the transfer of equity transaction.
