Could you please explain your situation a little more?
Hi I want head the house that i'm going to buy to my son o 12 months because i have a debit with a bank abroad and i want be sure that the bank will never come here to knoch my door to ask me the house to cover the debit.
In my country to avoid this problem peoples head the house to a son with the usufruct to them (the parents) for all the life.
Like that bank will never try to take the propiety of the house.
Is that clear?
My question is that possible here?
Head to house, you mean give the house?
i mean my son own the house
he is the owner
Your son owns the house, you are in problems with debt and you want to know if the bank can take the house away from him?
i want ask if my son can own the house, can he? and can we have the usufruct of it?
Does he already own the house?
I don't know what you mean unsufruct? You mean use of the house?
not yet if is possible i want do it. yes i mean the use of the house
Ok - so you own the house and want to transfer it to your son - how old is he?
12 month now
i'm not owning it yet
i'm going to buy it
So you are going to buy it in 12 months then you want to transfer it to your son?
Do you have money problems now or just in case you will in the future?
HI Alex i'm not clear?
My son is 12months old
i want buy the house ASAP
i have a debit with a bank abroad
that is why i want do that
i prefe don't say i europe anyway
i prefer don't say, in europe anyway
If you buy a house and own it outright then yes you can transfer it to your son as long as he is over 18 years of age.
But you need to survive any gift by 7 years otherwise if you die, tax would be payable on that gift generally.
Yes if it is mortgage free then yes you can transfer it.
so i have to wait that will be 18?
Yes, he can not own property until he is 18
and for your experience having a debit with an european bank . the bank will discover that i booth a house in Uk and
come to take it?
They can yes if they get a County Court Judgment in their country, then they could get a European Enforcement Order and yes, they could get a charge on the house in the UK and make you sell it.
