What is a Property Adjustment Order or Transfer Order in Divorce?

A Property Adjustment Order is a court order that determines what happens to the matrimonial home when you divorce or separate if both parties haven’t been able to agree what to do.

Property adjustment orders are legal documents which can include orders to transfer property, settle property or vary nuptial settlements, though Transfer of Property Orders are the most widely used.

A Property Adjustment Order, therefore, states how a family home should be dealt with following divorce. This may result in an immediate transfer of property, or an agreement to transfer the property later, for instance when children finish full-time education or reach the age of 18.

If you’re unsure whether you need a property adjustment order then our article will simply explain when they are necessary and how to get one.
