    Lease extension

    Hi I'm a newbie and would welcome information about any tax relief on a 99 year lease extension I have just paid for.

    It would be against CGT, not income.

      The cost of "lease extension" is added to the property buying costs and applied in calculation of the capital gain only AFTER you sell the property.

      If you paid for a statutory 90 years lease extension at peppercorn ground rent, your new lease may be around 150 years

      If you paid for a "non-statutory lease extension" to restart at 99 years , that is non-statutory lease extension and you will be facing payment for another lease extension in less than 19 years.

        No problem, happy to help.
        It's worthwhile talking things through with a family solicitor, though.

        You and your mother want to make sure your wills are watertight.
        Many people who lose their spouse tend not to update any will that they had previously set up with their partner,...

        Joint ownership would also avoid IHT even if one of the joint tenants wasn't living there - provided they hadn't been given the joint tenancy for nothing (that's the unusual element of your situation)....

        I spoke with HMRC IHT and CGT dept about all this, as it was bothering me.

        Correct its not a gift with reservation as we are both living there as our main residence. They said upon either individuals death the property will go all to the other person. There is possibly no need for probate...

        I have inherited a property from my father. It needs TOTAL refurbishment and Is suited to conversion into two self contained, three bedroom flats. My plan is to rent the flats out once refurbished. I realise there are many things to consider and am finding it overwhelming at the moment. I initially...

        Flats can be complex from a title point of view because one of them is dependent on the other, the upstairs flat can't exist independently of the downstairs property.
        You need to get some proper legal advice on how best to administer the title.

        While the letting agent is probably...

        It's not a "gift with reservation" if both the person making the gift and the recipient both occupy the property and the recipient doesn't pay anything to the donor.
        That exception is essentially aimed at exactly this kind of situation.

        Your mother paying rent wouldn't change...

        Thank you both. Estate agent said little call for large rental property here and better return on two three bedroom properties. As far as refurbishment costs, I can figure out the cost of doing two separate properties over doing one and feel I can manage those. I don’t see need to separate the titles...

        Not paying rent reinforces the reservation of benefits position.

        Whilst I believe it would be subject to the 40% marginal rate on that part of the £450k that took the estate over the allowance, my knowledge only really extends to knowing there is an issue in principle, and there may be...
