Step By Step Guide

This Guide will show you how to sever your joint tenancy after separation. Severing a joint tenancy is the process by which you convert a joint tenancy into a tenancy in common. It is a relatively straightforward process and we have prepared all the draft documents you need, so that you can do it yourself and save on legal fees.

Our online DIY ‘How to Sever a Joint Tenancy Guide’ will show you how to sever your joint tenancy for a fraction of the cost of getting a solicitor to do it for you.

Once you enrol you will get instant online access to our ‘Severing a Joint Tenancy Guide’ which includes:-

  • Original Title Register (how to obtain copy)
  • Draft notice of severance
  • Draft cover letter
  • Land Registry SEV form.
  • Draft updated Title Register
  • Full instructions (PDFs/videos etc)
You will now be able to very easily prepare your own notice of severance and send it with the necessary covering letter, and then advise the Land Registry once the joint tenancy has been severed.

Please note that this guide does not apply to property held in Scotland.
