Transfers and Gifts of Property

If you are making a gift of property or a transfer without payment of the full price there are many points that may need consideration;

  • Will there be a liability to pay Capital Gains Tax?
  • Are there Inheritance Tax implications?
  • How will it affect assessments for future long term care?
  • What will happen if the person making the gift goes bankrupt?
  • What is the position if there are creditors owed money?
  • Are there any third party claims against the property?
  • What happens if in the future there is a divorce?

Anyone intending to give away property or accept less than the full value should, for their own protection and also for the protection of the recipient, receive independent advice.
