    You may need your mortgage lender's permission and should check that before you do anything.
    The trust will reduce the value of the security of the lender's loan by 50% and they might have an issue with that.

    The lender's charge on the property may need to be varied.

    Your wife will need to advise HMRC of her new source of income and agree how it will be reported to them (usually by self assessment).

    CGT when sold will be based on 50% of the gain from the date of the trust, you can't backdate it.

    And I share Gordon999's view of the interest allowance.

    I believe if wife is not named on the mortgage loan , she cannot include mortgage interest in her 50% share of the maintenance expenses

    Transfer beneficial interest

    I own a property in my sole name.

    I want to transfer 50% of the beneficial interest to my wife. Property has £100k mortgage. Not looking to make any changes to title deeds.

    Is my understanding correct as below:

    - I sign a declaration of trust giving her 50% beneficial interest.
    - no need to inform mortgage lender since deeds not changed
    -no need to inform HMRC except when I do tax return next year.
    - annual income from property will be split 50:50
    -CGT upon sale will be 50:50?
    - no stamp duty will be payable due to mortgage size

    Is this correct?

    Hi hoping someone can clarify...

    I'm busy doing 2019-20 return. We sold a BTL during that year for £79500. As it was jointly owned between me and husband do I treat it as selling for £39750 for my part (and his) and therefore below the £48000 amount that you have to report on SA for...

  • Implications of Gifting a % of Property

    Hi

    My main residence is unencumbered. I am thinking ahead (with the thought of the 7 year rule on inheritance tax).

    If I gift my son 50% of my property now - would I still be OK to live in the house?

    Would there be any immediate tax consequences of gifting him...

    Things to consider:

    Think carefully before giving assets away as you do not know what the future holds.

    If you put an asset into trust or give it away as part of a tax planning exercise you are going to lose control over it.

    If you have fears about what may happen...

    It's still an operating cost and still allowable.
    A very cautious person might allocate some of the cost as a capital item, but I wouldn't.

    Allowable costs are any costs incurred solely and exclusively for the business.
    Then you allocate them as either operational (allowed against...

    Why do you think the roof repair can't be claimed against tax?

    The IHT tax rate of 40% tax rate is currently charged on the estate value exceeding £325K ( first £325K is free of IHT tax ) . The £325K starting level for IHT tax may be raised to £500K level, if the family home is left to children of the deceased person.
