    • Thanks DX.  I've ploughed through the pages and dug out what I feel are the relevant ones. Obviously, some of these are duplicates of what I've put up before.  Anyway, I would be hugely grateful if someone can look over and advise. Reading though other posts and on other cases that I've had help with from here, I don't think they have much of a case - given the weakness of much of their "evidence" - but obviously I would be grateful for some expert advice from the helpful souls on here.    Thank you.    B   Witness Oct19_redacted.pdf
    • You came here for advice, soem advice has been given adn you question the validity and source of that advice. We are all lay peopele, ie not giving professional advice but it is based on experience of the world and in some cases working in the field that advice is given on. Now you dont have to take our advice, we wont get the huff if you prefer to look elsewhere or do something else. when I asked what you think they would do with your NI number it is to prod you to think for yourself and question why they would ask for this when there is nothing legal they can do with the information so wouild you be wnating to give it to them knowing that they would want it to break the law if they processed it. Now you can take that up with the company at the top but TBH unless you want to spend money on a lawyer they will not answer the question or fob you off with some ridiculous answer anyway.   so for the moment read a lot about  RLP and similar situations to yours ans make particular note of what happened to the peopel in the end. You will find no threads theat ended by saying " thanks to you I gor sued by RLP and owe them a fortune". It isnt going to happen and the reasons why are explained in many threads. They rely on your feeling of guilt to get anywhere
    • you need to respond to their letter saying that you belive that you ahve been paid correctly ( or underpaid if you are due a small amount of accrued holiday pay etc) and demand that they show a full account of what you received, when and why and how they arrived at this figure. You then reconcile that with your P45 and use the figures to bat off any furhter demands if they still akke one. Come back if they dotn drop the matter and give us the full breakdown on hours worked, hourly rate, gross pay, tax paid  etc
    • @dx100ukI never got a response to my SAR from Octopus.   But I have just received a 'letter before court action' from one of their legal representatives, who have been "instructed to consider legal action against [me] if full payment, a settlement or your proposals to make suitable repayments arrangements are not received in the next 30 days."   I'm reading the threads now. Any advice on how to proceed? 
    • I would say let them do their worst, it will surely backfire on them. Now with restrictive contracts that stop you working fro competitors- these are notoriously vague so often not worth the paper they are written on. also they have to be fair so for example if there are only 2 companies in the UK that make a certain product your employer cant say you arent allowed to work for the other one. If you were for example trained as a hairdersser and you were going to open a salon in the next street to your ex employer then the restriction would apply if worded correctly. Dont panic about this, your new employer will be au fait with the situation and time spent worrying about a nastly letter will in their eyes take you eye off the ball so concentrate on the new job.

Best way of gifting a property

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi,

 

Would really appreciate some advice on if I will be liable to pay Capital Gains Tax

 

Summary

 My parents are about to buy the house next door to me. Cash buyer.  Semi detached. Well under the inheritance tax threshold. No outstanding mortgage. As soon as they buy it they want to gift it to myself, wife and or children as I have financially supported them over the years, cleared some of their debt and they want to support their grandchildren. They wont be paying me rent.

 

When they gift it me it will be valued at exactly the same price they paid for it. They own no other properties.

 

Even considered knocking through and turning it into one big property.(Classed as living together). Would that impact on it?

 

I currently own a house myself so dont want them to buy the new house in my name as I will be liable for Stamp Duty

 

Im aware of all the risks around divorce and falling out with family so just need some advice on the financial side of things. There are no known issues regarding avoiding fees for care homes/bankruptcy. 

 

Many thanks

Hi.

 

You need to gather a lot of information on this. We'll do our best to help but it's possible you will need to see a lawyer.

 

I'll go and look for information, but two things I think you should look at are 'gifts with reservation' and 'deprivation of capital'.

AgeUK on deprivation of capital/assets.

I think you and your parents may need to see a specialist wills and probate solicitor to talk through the ramifications of what they want to do. You can find local specialists through the Law Society website, Find a Solicitor. You can tell the site where you live and it will tell you who deals with wills and probate.

Consider setting up a Discretionary Trust. 

You will need a Trust lawyer to set it up for you.

But the basics are:

2 Trustees and named beneficiaries

Your parents can "give" the money to the Trust - up to £325k IHT threshold - to purchase it

This is useful route if you don't intend to sell the property.

selling at a profit would incur capital gains tax.

Also it won't impact your own personal residency ownership

The lawyer would advise you properly though

You 100% need professional legal advice from a qualified solicitor on this matter unfortunately.

Thanks for the advice, it's appreciated. I will get some formal advice before jumping in.

 

Reading my original post back it doesn't make it very clear as half of it is hypothetical as I'm exploring options at the moment and just want t ok do the best.

 

What I'm leaning towards is

 

1) loaning my parents money to clear existing debt and mortgage. This loan will be drawn up and secured against property. No interest charged.

 

2) This will allow them to downsize, sell their house and move into the house next door to me.

 

3) I will benefit as I don't get a random neighbour, I help them out,I never intend to move. I will also hopefully be named in the will. 

 

No inheritance  or income tax issues. No sign of this in the near future but if they do go into care I won't be out of pocket due to loan agreement.

 

Like I said these are just initial thoughts and we will get professional advice.
