Order for Transfer of Joint Tenancy

Dean acted for the wife in an application for an application made by a husband to transfer a joint tenancy of a housing association property into his sole name.

Dean’s client had lived in the property since the parties separated, however the husband sought to transfer the tenancy into his sole name, thus removing her from the property.

The matter was resolved by way of agreement at an interim hearing. An order was made transferring the tenancy into the sole name of the wife, thus ensuring she could remain living in the property and avoid the time, uncertainty and expense of a final hearing.
