    That is all extremely helpful - thank you lawcruncher.

    I presume that entering the restriction that "no disposition under which capital money arises is to be registered without a court... (rest of your paragraph)" can be implemented without any recourse to B/cooperation of B at all - otherwise it would be a fairly unusable protection?


      When a disposition to joint proprietors is registered you have to say if the property is held as joint tenants or tenants-in-common. If it is the latter the restriction is entered. The surviving tenant-in-common cannot get the restriction removed without supplying to HMLR evidence that he is entitled to the whole. If no restriction is entered on a severance of a joint tenancy any beneficiary can get the restriction entered on satisfying HMLR that there has been a severance.


        If OP moves overseas for more than one year and becomes non-resident, the job income is taxed in the country of new residence.

        Therefore the rental profit from letting of mortgaged property in UK may be covered by the personal allowance of £11,800 ( assuming you hold a UK passport. ) .


          A well drafted double taxation arrangement would result in the tax not collected in the UK being collected in the country of domicile.


            I'm not an expert but I believe Land Registry are not interested in the percentage of ownership, only if it's owned by joint tenants or tenants in common.


              In the example quoted for A and B named as t-i-c on the property title , A would be registered as A ( Trustee for C&D Trust ).


                I am currently in the same situation except that I am in the UK, I have moved from England to Scotland. Can I open a company in my wife's name as a property management firm and move all the profit in her name?

                Appreciate your help



                  To get the right answer, your question should be put to a taxation accountant in Scotland.

                  A management company can charge 10-15% management fee, not 100% management fee .

                    The taxman's method of calculating :

                    Capital gain is the Sale Price ( say £200K ) minus Purchase Price ( say £130K ) = £70K capital gain.

                    But buying and selling expenses are allowable and include the conveyancing cost : say £1K plus estate agent'...

                    Evening all,

                    I am currently looking to move house and also have a rental property that has around £200k equity in it.

                    The rental house had consent to let and on a repayment mortgage and has 3 years to go until I can switch deals.

                    I have spoken to a mortgage broker...

                    Thank you for your kind words JP and the tips re using an accountant. Having been taxed at source all my working life this is very useful information. I will look round for an accountant. A friend of mine who is also a landlord as well as having a day job has one, so maybe a personal recommendation...

                    Thank you for your work in the NHS!

                    I've found that the first sessions were the most valuable in terms of what could be saved, and the value has diminished slightly and the costs of the returns being done has stayed the same/slightly increased, so it feels like it's less worth it.

                    I use one page of a spreadsheet for all the income and expenses and have other pages which automatically summarise the data property by property.

                    I been looking at spreadsheets to list my expenses and every template I find seems to allocate expenses per house ie 5 houses = 5 separate sheets whereas I just put everything down on one sheet.
                    I would like to know if I have been doing it wrong all these years.

                    When you sell the property, you can't retain any of the equity, so that doesn't really make any sense to me.
                    On disposal, the mortgage will end and have to be repaid.

                    The value of the rental property when first let is also a limit to the amount of the loan against which interest can...

                    Gordon999 thanks for your reply. In regards to CGT so if I was due to sell a house I could request to remove all the equity before the sale and wouldn’t be subject to CGT... that doesn’t seem right.

                    In regards to switching my mortgage from repayment to and interest only... would I incur...

                    Its good to keep a separate sheet for each property because when you come to sell one house , you may want to show the rental and expenses records for one house to prospective buyers.
