If a joint tenant has passed away, a Survivorship Application can transfer the deceased’s share of a property to the remaining joint tenant(s).
Your team of friendly and experienced conveyancers can complete a Survivorship Application carefully and efficiently. First, we’ll contact you to ensure we understand your unique circumstances. Then, we’ll:
Conduct the relevant title searches
Prepare an application to change the Certificate of Title
Certify the appropriate certification (a death certificate)
Advise government authorities of the change
Lodge the documentation directly with Landgate – or if you have a mortgage on the property
We’ll attend settlement with your bank
When you work with Residential Settlements, all initial documentation will be completed within 48 hours. We’ll be ready to complete the transfer as soon as all documentation is signed, and your bank is ready to settle (if applicable).
