    Thank you. I had looked at some guidance pages on the site but hadn't seen this. Yes, it certainly looks the way. Many thanks.

  • Giving Property to Spouse (under court consent order - Divorce)


    We have several properties which all of my equitable interest is to be given to my spouse.

    On the jointly owned properties, this is a straightforward transfer of equity and no SDLT has been payable.

    Now, we seem to have hit a problem. One of the properties is in my sole name and there is a mortgage on the property of £180k (property value is around £360k).

    We understand from the accountant there is no CGT to pay between husband and wife, but if my spouse has to raise a mortgage, so that I am released from the property - would SDLT be payable? And just to repeat the heading above, the equity is being given to spouse as per Court Consent Order.

    Many thanks.

    We have a semi rural house which is part of a Hamlet once all owned by my wife’s Nanna and Grandad.
    My wife had used part of this land for 25 years (Her brother had it for 15 years previous to her) to house her animals with a verbal agreement that she could use it until she gave up keeping...

    As a general proposition that is correct. However, what we have here is a situation where at the start the owner A gave permission to X and the current position is that the owner is B and the occupier Y. The question therefore arises whether the original permission lapsed on the first change (whether...

    I am considering purchasing a short lease ground floor flat that forms 1 of 2 flats within a 2 storey edwardian property.

    There are a number of issues with the flat and am considering whether it's even worth getting a solicitor on board - as I noticed a number of issues with the lease and...

    I don't think there's anything you can do if you can't negotiate. The value lost from their house will be put onto yours if you bought it so the figures might stack up even if it appears you're paying too much for it. Think very carefully before you refuse to remove your livestock, it's very easy for...

    Hello all,

    A sale that looked dead because of the virus might be going head. We are in the middle of three-property chain.

    I would like to know our legal position should we exchange and then our buyers' mortage falls through before completion.

    Do we both have to...
