John and his team are an absolute pleasure to deal with - from the moment you walk in you are made feel welcome and at... ease. John helped guide me through probate after the death of my wife and made everything from start to finish totally seamless. I have also used Griffin Solicitors for some other services (affidavit for daughters passport, wills etc). Always looked after and always so professional. I would not hesitate to recommend them to family and friends who may need their professional services.read more

Transfer assets into joint names to avoid Probate

Transferring your assets into the joint names of a married couple. Many properties are owned by one spouse only. On death of the owner the surviving spouse must obtain a grant of probate in order to transfer the property into their name. If the property is in joint names the surviving spouse will inherit the property without the need to make such an application.

All investment property should, at some stage, be placed in joint names. There is no stamp duty payable. Having the investment property in joint names will allow the  surviving spouse to have the immediate benefit of the property and rental income  on the death of the other spouse.

Contact us for more information on transferring your property into joint names.
