Deceased Estates – Surviving Proprietor / Estate Real Estate
Most married and de-facto couples hold real estate as joint proprietors. When one partner dies the surviving partner takes the property as their own. Joint proprietorship circumvents the deceased person’s Will. The surviving proprietor will then need to change the title to reflect the change from joint proprietors to sole proprietor.
There is no stamp duty payable in these circumstances. Goodman Group Lawyers can quickly change the title to save you time and money.
