Ownership of the property might be transferred to a company for taxation purposes.
An individual property owner might request a change of property ownership as a means of minimising business risk.
If a property is joint owned and one of the owners has passed away, necessitating a land or house title transfer.
Transferring property to family, such as parents choosing to gift their property to their child or children.
A property is left to an individual in a will, known as deceased estate transfer of property
