How much does a deed of trust cost?

The information on this page is for you if you are

paying anything towards the purchase of a property and you will not be a registered owner;

buying a property with another person and you are not married to them;

re-mortgaging a property to release funds to another joint owner;

Nicola Williams Solicitor - deed of trust cost

If you’re not sure whether you need a deed of trust you can arrange a free consultation. I can help you decide whether a deed of trust is right for you.

How much does a deed of trust cost?

My deed of trust service costs £275 for a single deed/property.

This includes:

explaining what can be recorded in a deed of trust and how it is registered at the land registry;

helping you to decide more specifically what you need in your trust deed;

drafting your bespoke deed of trust;

guidance on valid execution of the deed; and

application for registration at the land registry.

What if you already have a conveyancing solicitor?

In many cases you will also have a conveyancer, for example if you are in the process of buying or re-mortgaging the property.

Often conveyancing charges are included in the price of your mortgage.

Conveyancers deal with changes to the legal ownership of property. Generally they also act for your mortgage lender at the same time.

Dealing with the beneficial ownership is separate from standard conveyancing although it tends to be done at the same time.

I will work with your conveyancer, where necessary, to ensure that the deed of trust is registered with any other changes of ownership or mortgage lender.

Property details

Is the property in England or Wales?

It is only possible to create a deed of trust when all of the owners agree to it.

The areas you will need to agree on are:

  1. How much the property is worth;
  2. How much is currently outstanding on any mortgage (if you are in the process of buying the property this will be the amount that is being drawn down on completion day plus any penalties for early repayment etc.);
  3. How much each owner/person involved with the agreement, has paid towards the deposit and other purchase costs – stamp duty, legal fees and so on;
  4. Who is going to live in the property;
  5. Who is initially going to pay the mortgage and the bills (or in what shares);
  6. How long you want the agreement to last.
Do all the owners/people involved with this agreement, agree on the points listed above?
Do you consent to being contacted by email to arrange a free consultation?
