    Property transferred upon death (as this effectively would be treated) does not attract SDLT unless consideration is paid and a deed of variation can be entered into so the property is transferred directly to a company.

    Careful, think about the double entry when you transfer a property to a limited company (a nice DLA). You will have none of this benefit which will probably far outweigh the SDLT saving in a few years.

    Do some research before you make a decision. Even if they are intestate you can use a deed of variation. If you don't want to do the leg work perhaps pay for some proper advice.

    Borrow a book from your local library about probate or buy a diy probate book online.

    Unfortunately there was no will set up as she died suddenly and so is dealing with probate

    If he's the sole beneficiary and executor, it would be simple.

    Unless you really want to pay more tax go and see a solicitor instead. They can alter the will eg https://www.redstonewills.com/news/i...it-benefit-you

    Thanks for the advice.

    i suspected it would trigger sdlt. Will advise seeking professional advice from an accountant 👍

    Since the mother is dead ,she is in no way able to transfer the asset, so as your friend is the beneficiary of the property I suspect that the transfer of the asset toa Limited Company would be treated as a sale and purchase and if your friend owns their own property this would triggerthe SDLT. To be sure I would advocate your friend speaking to an accountant.

    I think you can change the will with a deed of variation so it's left to the company instead of yourself.

    Inheriting a property directly to a limited company

    Happy VE Day first and foremost 😁

    A friend of mine‘s mother sadly passed away recently and he intends to rent out the property which he will inherit.

    The life insurance pay out will clear the mortgage, so there shouldn’t be any complications with a lender.

    It would make sense for the usual tax reasons to have the property registered under a limited company however would it be possible to register the property straight into a limited company directly from his mother, rather than going to him personally and then having to sell it to the limited company and incurring the usual stamp duty charges?

    I would imagine this is (unfortunately) a common question when when dealing with inheritance. Has anyone else researched this previously?

    Thanks in advance

    I watched the BBC Parliament channel this morning and noticed Rishi Sunak said the no stamp duty concession is for buyers of their MAIN home. So its not for BTL buyers.

    Any ideas if I were to transfer/sell a BTL <£500k into a LTD Company in the next couple of months, would the transaction be covered with the no SDLT payable (announced by the chancellor today)?

    No. It's 3% if it isn't your main home.

    If the purchase is registered jointly , under yours and father's name , it means paying extra 3% sdlt.

    Its better for you to buy under your name only and own 100% of the property, and let your father act as the "mortgage lender" to you and pay him interest at same rate as charged...
