    transfer of ownership to spouse; mortgage implications

    In order to minimise the income tax liability on our rental income, I am planning to transfer ownership of our property to my wife (probably to a 99-to-1 % split). I understand from previous threads that this will require a Declaration of Trust defining the Beneficial Ownership and a Form 17 to HMRC but what is not clear to me is the implications for the joint-mortgage with our mortgage lender (Clydesdale Bank). Do they need to know that the ownership proportions are changing? Why? If so, what costs are likely to be involved?

    I'd be grateful for any advice.

    i think you need to consult with mortgage lender first to get their consent . You have already given the mortgage lender a charge over the property title to secure a mortgage loan.

      Post #2 is correct but, as for post #1, no- the mortgagee is not concerned with the beneficial interests: only with who owns the legal estate.

        I purchased a shell of a house that was structurally sound but needed complete refurbishment. The house had been ransacked many items. eg All the radiators & copper pipe had been ripped from the walls.
        A builder completed all the work from start to finish. The final cost was an all-in job...

        It may certainly be beneficial to allocate some of those expenses to running costs, electrical work required for the NEIC certainly is solely for the letting. Depends how much profit you are likely to make though, you'll have to do some sums .

        If you purchased a building shell , and had the builder carry out the refurbishment work , then enter all expenses as an improvement in your records. You paid the builder by cheque and should have kept bank statements to show all payments .

        No need to break down the cost into operating...

        I'd suggest that based on that description, all of the work was probably capital.

        I believe your solicitor has to prepare a Deed of Trust which transfers 60 % interest in the property from wife to you.

        You need to make clear to your solicitor that Deed is for HMRC only and not for registration at Land Registry

        After signing the Deed , you...

        Hello. Since 2013 my wife and I own a property as tenants in common where the beneficial interest split is 90% her and 10% me. We are now looking to sell the property. I have a large CGT loss and using the HMRC CGT calculator I have calculated that if I change the split to 70% me and 30% my wife...

        The existing declaration states 10:90 beneficial interest not legal interest

        The Declaration changing the beneficial interest to 70:30 is prepared only for showing to the Tax Office .

        The existing registration of 10% :90% legal interest at Land Registry does not change and the Mortgage Lender has already accepted this situation. .

        Hi. My solicitor has told me the declaration needs to be registered with the land registry otherwise there will be no effect of creating the declaration. Is this correct?

        I have also spoken to my lenders and they have mentioned they will want a new copy of the title. I mentioned to them...
