Switch from joint tenants to tenants in common using a Notice of Severance

When to use a Notice of Severance

If you own a property with another person (or persons) as joint tenants and one of you dies, the survivor will become the sole owner – whatever it says in your Will. 

If you’d like someone else to inherit your share – such as one of your children – you’ll need to change from being joint tenants to tenants in common. With Which? Wills you can do this by completing a simple document.*

Options & Prices

To sever your joint tenancy you’ll get two copies of the Notice of Severance, an SEV form and a covering letter to inform the Land Registry of the change.
