How does one as executor remove a deceased person's name from the title deeds for a property in Parkstone?

Where a Parkstone property is jointly owned and one of the proprietors passes away, the name will not immediately be removed from the title deeds. You are not required to remove their name as when it comes to a sale your lawyer would just be asked to evidence why the joint proprietor is not a party to the contract, ordinarily this is in the form of the probate documents.

With a view to making the sale conveyancing simpler for the sale of the property you can arrange to have the deceased party erased from the title by applying to the land registry with evidence of the death. There is no land registry fee payable.
