Case Profile

Our client was managing a growing property portfolio in which she owned a home with her brother and a separate buy to let property which was rented out. However, she lived with her mother in the large family home.

After seeking tax planning advice coupled with the mothers mortgage term coming to an end, the decision was made that our client’s mother would gift the home in full to her daughter as part of the inheritance tax planning. This meant that stamp duty was payable on the mortgage amount outstanding on the property which amounted to £340,000.

UK regulations mean that our client would need a mortgage which considered the full value of the property, gifting property equity to the applicant, and a mortgage provided is she would only be required to pay stamp duty on the mortgage outstanding to the UK Government on the amount of £340,000. This proved too complex for some lenders, who were unable to accept the case.

As a gifted equity situation, our client has effectively replaced her mother’s mortgage and taken over ownership of the property. We therefore needed to find a lender who would consider the case as a concessionary gift purchase.

To ensure they did not fall foul of Inheritance Tax Rules, our client’s mother would be moving out of the property once she had gifted it. Her mother then intended to split her time between the UK and overseas. Our client planned to let the house out on the rental market, and therefore needed a solution which would also allow for this.

Solution

Our expert team of advisers sourced a Building Society which accepted all of the circumstances and granted a concessionary gift purchase mortgage on an interest only basis. Our client and her family have now happily proceeded with the transfer and are enjoying their new living arrangements.

Notes

This case study is for information and illustration purposes only. It is not an offer, or suggestion of an offer. Each mortgage case is assessed on an individual basis and there is no guarantee that the solution described here can be repeated in the future.

Please note that this specific deal may not be available to – or suitable for – all customers, dependent on their individual circumstances. The rate quoted may become out of date at short notice and may not be available at the point at which customers enquire about it. This document may not contain all the information needed for customers to make a decision and they should seek advice.

Overall cost for comparison 5.00% APRC representative variable based on 61 payments at a fixed rate of 2.15%, followed by 239 payments at the lenders variable rate, currently 5.99%. Because all, or part of, the mortgage is currently, or will revert to, a variable interest rate mortgage, the actual APRC could be different from this APRC and the payments could increase, if the interest rate of the loan changes.  For example, if the interest rate rose to 12.7%, the APRC could increase to 13.7%. The actual rate available will depend on your circumstances. Ask for a personalised illustration.

Your home or property may be repossessed if you do not keep up the repayments on your mortgage. Changes in the exchange rate may increase the sterling equivalent of your debt.
