    If it is registered at the Land Registry, you will need to complete a deed of Transfer (form TR1) and an application to change the register (form AP1) and identification forms for all parties (form ID1). Please note, there may be tax issues involved as a result of the gift

        The forms can all be downloaded from the Land Registry website: Land Registry - Land Registry In theory, you can deal with it all without using a solicitor; in practice, I think it would be quicker and less stressful to use a solicitor; it is your choice, really
