Add other person name as tenant in common or joint tenancy


At Diplock Solicitors, we provide comprehensive legal services for property owners looking to add another person’s name to their property title, either as a tenant in common or in a joint tenancy arrangement.


Adding a co-owner to your property title is a significant legal step, and our experienced solicitors are here to guide you through the process. Whether you wish to establish a tenancy in common or joint tenancy, we’ll ensure that your interests are protected, and all legal requirements are met.

Here’s a brief overview of the two options:

Tenant in Common: If you choose to hold the property as tenants in common, each co-owner will have a distinct and separate share in the property. This share can be equal or unequal, depending on your preferences. In the event of one co-owner’s passing, their share can be passed on through their estate to their chosen beneficiaries, rather than automatically transferring to the other owner(s).

Joint Tenancy: In a joint tenancy, all co-owners collectively own the entire property. There is no distinct share for each owner. If one co-owner passes away, their share automatically transfers to the surviving owner(s), following the principle of the “right of survivorship.”


Our services include:

  • Legal Consultation: We’ll start with a consultation to understand your specific needs and goals.

  • Title Examination: We’ll conduct a thorough examination of your property’s title to ensure there are no legal issues or encumbrances.

  • Drafting Legal Documents: Our solicitors will prepare the necessary legal documents to establish the tenancy arrangement, including tenancy in common agreements or joint tenancy declarations.

  • Filing and Registration: We’ll handle all paperwork and submissions to officially add the new co-owner to the property title.

  • Legal Advice: Throughout the process, we’ll provide legal advice and guidance to ensure that your interests are protected.

Whether you’re adding a family member, partner, or friend to your property title, Diplock Solicitors is committed to making the process smooth and legally sound. Contact us today to discuss your specific situation and get started on adding a co-owner to your property.
