My brother in law wants to give a small house to his sister but is worried that people (Inland Revenue and the likes) will think something is dodgy. The house only cost £12,000.00 at auction and is a build up project. He is a new landlord with another property and has a few bob, so he wants his sister to have a start at it. Can he give such a gift without any problems? Also, how does he go about it?


Thank You


Sorry it is in the wrong forum:-(.

Hi Sod'em..


Obviously check with your BiL's solicitor - who will also handle the Transfer of Title for him. I think he would be ok to do this, providing of course they both comply to money laundering laws, particularly as the property was purchased at a public auction so there can be no dispute on the property value.

Personal Capital Gains is £10,6000. So there could be a problem with £1,400 worth of income tax to sort out. One for his Solicitor really.


I'll move this to a more appropriate forum

Hello there. I could be out of date, but I think this could fall under the inheritance tax [iHT] rules too, but could be wiped out if your BiL lives for another 7 years. It's worth checking HMRC's website.


My best, HB
