Hi,

If wife wants to come off our joint mortgage does she have to approach the lender or do I?

If wife came off mortgage but remained on land registry would I be able to get a mortgage/secured loan on the property in my sole name or would I need her permission?

Its up to the lender to decide if your wife can be released from the mortgage.

If your wife remains on the title you don`t soley own the property so it very unlikely you could remortgage without her permission.

Cheers but who needs to approach the lender? The wife to ask to come off or me to ask to be soley responsible?

Its a joint mortgage my friend its best to approach as one, its a case of this is what we would like to happen, they will almost certainly then ask you to make an application in your name to see if they will allow you to take it over alone.
