    Capital Gains Tax Change April 2020

    As from April 6th 2020 any capital gains tax due on property sales has to be paid within 30 days of the sale of the property, only found this out yesterday on the news section on landlord zone.

    This has been in the news for sometime so should not really come as a shock. It is our duty as LLs to remain abreast of the changes in law so make sure you read articles on sites such as this, regularly, to keep up to date.

    If you missed this piece of legislation are you aware of the changes to EPC regulations, electric safety checks, mortgage relief, licensing regulations in your area? The PRS is no longer a place to make easy money with no knowledge of the law!

      £5 says almost all landlords will be somewhere not complying with some aspect of the well over 100 laws & regulations governing LL/T matters: Probably minor infringement, unintentional: I'm certain it's true for me & my esteemed lettings agents!
      I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

        I don't think that many landlords will pay any more tax, it'll catch some, but I'd have thought for the majority of landlords it's tax neutral.
        A small number of landlords will pay slightly more tax isn't much of a headline, though.

        At the time as s24 has been introduced, the personal...

      • S24 deduction of interest payment / Covid-19 Virus
        by Flashback1966
        I am wondering if S24 tax changes are going to come and haunt landlords.

        Under the tax changes landlords can't deduct interest payments in full. Individual Landlords have been paying more tax, then is fair.

        You could end up with a situation where the tenant wont or can't...

        Im sure the reservation relies on the person who made the gift.
        If we was to sell the property and take our 50/50 share of the sale price would that release the gift with reservation if we then went on to buy our own property

        5 years ago i gifted part of my property to my son as joint tenants. We lived in the property together. So its possibly a grob.

        Now we want to go our separate ways. Could he buy my share out so he owns the whole house. And i use the money to buy elsewhere. Could this introduce a IHT or...

        The reservation will depend (as far as I can see) on who pays the running costs of the property.
        If the running costs are split in line with the ownership, it's one thing, if the property is run as though it was the mother's house with her continuing to pay all the bills is another.

        Well if CGT was not payable on the first slice it won't be on the second.

        I don't see that you retained a benefit, but I can't find any case law to that effect. But if rent was payable it would have gone in both directions (you would have paid your son half the rent and he would have paid...

        Interesting that it may not be a grob as we own it all together. But surely hmrc will view it as i retained a benefit.

        Its our only main property i dnt think any cgt will be due. I was asking will cgt be due if i make another gift or sell my share to get my name of deeds?
        I ask because...

        Although they were BOTH living there and both owned it -- so the share gifted is probably not a GROB. It would be if only the OP was living there (owning only a portion) and not paying rent.

        It depends on the proportion - if the OP owned 1% and paid no rent - I think it would be in GROB...
