However, just reread your post again and you should think about your income tax position before going through with it. As a married couple jointly owning you have to split the income either 50:50 or at the actual ownership share for income tax assessment. So if your partner is earning and you are not, then you could be paying more tax between you.
Interestingly the position is not the same for jointly owning unmarried couples, they can elect any split for tax purposes they like. A point I got tripped up on a few threads down!
You might be better achieving the same marital bliss by just changing your will to specifically benefit your new husband with the property should the worst happen.
The time to transfer it into joint names is just before you sell - as it will halve your CGT liability.
If it sounds like I know what I am talking about........I don't.
