Last edited: Dec 24, 2016 I want to help out a relative. They need to release funds so as they can put their children through college. I've agreed to finance it by buying her husbands share of their house. Leaving all trust issues aside (the need for 'searches', etc.), can this be done simply without fuss? There's no expectation of the property ever being sold. I/We just want to simply replace the name of one co-owner on the title of the property with another. Is there a format we can follow to achieve this without having to involve solicitors? Assumptions: I have no concern as regards existing title. I have no need for 'searches' to be carried out eg. cpo search, planning search, etc. I have no concern as regards existing mortgages, loans, securities on the property - as there are none. **N.B. - I know that some will warn against the assumptions I'm making but you can take it as read that I've thought this through - I'm a grown adult - if any of the above comes into play, I am happy to live with that reality.
