Transfer of Equity

Transfer of equity is the term used to describe the change of ownership of a property where at least one of the original owners remains on the legal title. Some common situations which result in a transfer of equity include couples who have joint ownership of a property separating, or couples getting married and a subsequently transferring ownership of a property from one of their names into both names.
