Just watched Land Registry video about completing AP1. How do the registry verify the transaction is legal? Husband and I separating and he is buying me out. I believe I should removed from title on this property to avoid paying the second home additional stamp duty? Any advice about what I should be aware of?
If you are submitting the application yourselves you will also need to provide completed ID1s. The conveyancer who completes these will check your identity which assures Land Registry it's above board. If you have a solicitor they will complete the AP1 for you after verifying your identity.
