In order to proceed with this, the individual who is to remain on the mortgage account must apply to the lender for consent in order to transfer the mortgage.
This will usually involve a process in which the lender will assess whether the proposal meets their lending criteria. Assuming it does, a consent to transfer instruction would be issued which would be sent to the solicitor. This would contain the legal requirements set by the lender to enable the transfer to complete. It would then be a case of the solicitor working through those requirements and arranging for a Transfer Deed to be signed by both parties in order to remove sister from the legal title and the mortgage account.
Legal fees for this type of service would be £300 plus VAT of £60. There would be additional search fees and Land Registry costs which would depend on the nature of the individual transaction.
