• Joint Mortgage But Not Entitled To Equity?

    By Guest on 25th Jan 2016

    Hi, when my partner and I split up four years ago we went to the bank and I signed something stating that if we sold the property (jointly owned) I wouldn't be entitled to any money from the sale (on the understanding that my name would be taken off the mortgage as soon as possible). However I can't find a record of this document anywhere and I don't know what form I actually signed. Do you know what form that would've been?

    It sounds like you might have signed a declaration of trust. The land registry wouldn't normally hold a copy of such a document so I'm not sure where you would get a copy. Were you represented by a solicitor? Are you sure that legal ownership wasn't transferred into your partner's sole name?

    Thanks for your reply!

    Yes it wasn't transferred into his sole name, I'm still part of the mortgage. It was just to state that if he sold the property I wouldn't be entitled to any money from the sale.
