Inheritance tax: from 6 April 2017 a new family home allowance for deaths on or after 6 April 2017 when a residence is passed on death to lineal descendants. Savings of Inhertitance Tax may be up to £40,000 where an estate is taxable.
Property Fraud: the Land Registry has introduced a Property Alert service to reduce the risk of fraud where a property is owned by you but it is not your residence. Register at propertyalert.landregistry.gov.uk/
The changes to who inherits what under the intestacy rules: there are great benefits in making a Will to avoid unforeseen consequences where someone has not made a Will.
Lasting Powers of Attorney: can now be completed online. However this may not be practicable or you may want advice on them. We can see you at home if it helps you.
House sharing: is becoming increasingly common with different generations clubbing together to buy a home. This requires a clear written agreement (called a deed of trust) to ensure that the arrangement works without legal difficulties and rights are protected.
Stamp Duty Land Tax: There are new Stamp Duty rules for the purchase of additional residential property. This affects buying a second home or a holiday home or a buy-to-let.
