Matrimonial Property

Our expert family and divorce lawyers can help you with a wide range of matrimonial property matters – enabling you and your former partner to legally divide up and transfer ownership of previously shared property, particularly the family home. For many couples this is not only the emotional heart of the family, particularly if there are children involved, but also your most valuable asset so it’s important that the legal work is completed with sensitivity as well as speed.

Our aim is always to help separating couple achieve an appropriate settlement with as little upset and disruption to the children as possible. This may involve advising on arrangements, such as a Mesher Orders that enables couples to postpone the sale of the property until after children have completed their education. You will also want to ensure that non-resident partners do not retain rights of access to the property and its contents. We can advise on how to secure the appropriate arrangements.

Working closely with our national award-winning conveyancing team, our expert professionals will help you through the process of transfer of equity and conduct all the necessary conveyancing checks and searches that may be required for any new mortgage. We can also advise on the implications of the Legal Aid Board statutory charge.

Contact our Matrimonial Property experts for a smooth transfer of equity and a solution that suits the unique needs of your family.
