It is possible to add your wife's name to the title deeds without the advice of a solicitor and in this case it would cost just under 50. This can be done with forms available from the Land Registry Office. However, prior to doing this yourself, you would need to establish how you want the ownership to operate in practice, since there are various legal implications of choosing to be a joint tenant (this is a legal term for co-ownership) or whether you want a 'tenancy in common'. The mortgage lender will also need to be notified and will perhaps make a small charge for any paperwork this creates.

A solicitor would be able to advise on the legal implications and what the best option is for a particular case. This is important due to the consequences should you ever divorce or if one spouse dies. The cost for solicitor's fees for this service will vary according to your location etc but it would be best to budget in the region of 250-300 to have the deeds amended by a solicitor.

Last time I checked the fee was £40 that was around 18 months ago, it is relatively easy you will probably have to instruct a solicitor in order to do this.  THe solicitor registers your wife's name on the Title Deed and the Land Registry will then register the same.

This is done using either a Quit Claim Deed or a Warranty Deed. Some states offer both, but the Warranty Deed is the better of the two.

You would contact a title company and they would add your partner's name to the title using one of the two above, and record it for you.

If you are talking about adding your partner to the loan, then you would have to take out a new loan. Part of that process would be the above.

If you are trying to protect your partner in-case something happens to you, I would suggest that you check into a trust. This would protect your partner as there is no probate required.

There are several ways to change wife's name, by using: Statutory declaration, solicitor or a Deed Poll. Most of the solicitors will charge you at least £50 up to a £150 for the service.

If you want to go for the cheapest option, just apply for a Deed Poll online, have it witnessed, send it to the relevant organisations (Passport Office, DVLA, Landland Registry, Doctors etc.)

The deed poll itself won't cost you much - approximately £20-£25. However, changing the name on on your wife's passport afterwards it will be something like £70-£80 (check HM Passport Office for the exact price).

I am not able to put my hands on the deed for my house at the moment and I want to get a duplicate deed to put in safe keeping until or if I ever find the other one in the house someplace?

You can do that with a quitclaim deed. A quitclaim deed form will transfer property ownership interest. You can get your state's quitclaim deed form at [ LegalFormsBank.biz ].
