Thanks, CT. To clarify. The wife is intending to change her passport and driver's licence into her married name and that will enable VOI to be completed. The transfer will be without monetary consideration and stamping will be exempt as the home is their principal place of residence. She would be shown on the transfer as transferor under the name recorded on title but come onto title under her married name with her husband as transferees as tenants in common in equal shares. The mortgagee would provide its CORD consent but no doubt would have to re-document its loan and mortgage to husband and wife. I guess this sequence would avoid the need for the registration of a formal Change of Name and the transaction could proceed in PEXA.
