He has done this as he has been bullying me for years to put my house where we live in joint names, to sign a will that he has written and he has now put marital rights on my home. I am planning to lodge a petition for divorce in April. He is not aware of this. He lodged a divorce petition and then withdrew it earlier in the year.
My husband is 71 and quite a bit older than myself, so what concerns me is what would happen if he died before I divorce him. Presumably his daughters would have half of my houses, how would they pay inheritance tax, would the houses have to be sold? Then I would have to pay CGT on any sale or transfer. What could I do? Could I insist on keeping the houses and not transferring my share, they could not afford the inheritance tax.
