Hello,

What is the value of your mother's estate, including this house?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
The house is worth about £200.000 that I live him. She has some other assist that are being sold and then income from that will then be left to my brother.
Expert:  UKSolicitorJA replied 3 years ago.
Thank you.

If the total value of her estate is less than £325000, there is no inheritance tax to pay. Normally, inheritance tax is payable by the estate, not the heirs.
