    Transfering a Joint Ownership Mortgage House to a Limited Company

    Hello All,

    This is my first post, alot of useful info which is great for a landlord thanks.
    I jointly own a buy to let property with my sister. We would like to sell the property and buy something else abroard maybe.
    We are thinking the most Tax efficient way to do this would be to transfer the deeds and mortgage to the existing property to a Limited Company, sell the property and then buy the new property through the Limited Company.

    I was just woundering is this the most tax efficent way of facilitating this sort of transfer?

    i.e. whats the best way of selling my current buy to let house, if the intention is to buy another mortgaged property with the proceeds?

    Many Thanks

    I doubt it very much. A limited company is almost never the answer.


    The most sensible thing for you from a tax perspective is to do is to stick with the property you have.

      Sorry, I don't mean to snigger, but I am!

      Did someone suggest this, or is it another case of 'a limited company structure must be more tax efficient, although I have no known reason why or how'?!

      PS. Welcome to the board....no harm meant, just playing on the company = better tax mythological dream!

        You will become liable for capital gains tax whether you sell direct to a buyer or do a transfer to a company .

        If you decide to use a company, the extra costs will include - incorporating a company, paying the mortgage application charges for a company, 2 x conveyancing costs as "buyer of property" and "seller of property".

        A UK company may not be suitable for buying a foreign property. You need to get legal and tax advice when buying overseas.

          I started my limited company a year before buying the first property, then bought a second 2 months later, a third 3 months after that, a fourth 5 months after that and so on to where I am now. Our lenders have never said they want a separate company per property. Ive never heard of that, if it were...

          I don't think we disagree.

          The OP has one property and is looking to buy a second.
          At that point in that business, lenders will want a company per property.

          There's a point where that ceases to be the case, when the portfolio gets big enough, or, presumably when someone...

          i concur with this, once you get over 4 properties, they consider you to be a portfolio landlord and want to start seeing cashflow forecasts before lending to make sure the company is buoyant. Directors guarantees each time but no limits on number of properties or number of dofferent lenders....

          This is not true in my experience. I currently have eight properties in the same company, across a number of different mainstream BTL lenders, and none of them have batted an eyelid at the number.

          Where I have known lenders worry about the company is it doesn't have the correct SIC code...

          Depends to a great degree on tax regulations over the coming years. We only know what the rules are today, not what they'll be in future e.g. when you retire

          I expect chancellors to cut back on the advantages of people owning property through companies (well, wouldn't you if you were chancellor)...

          1. No. You have not sold the property yet

          2. 19% on profit by company.

          3. Seek advice from accountant.
