Hi, thanks for your chat. As discussed, I confirm that Inheritance tax is only payable if yours and your Wife's Estate are worth more than £650,000 at the time the surviving spouse dies. From what you have told me, it does not appear that your joint Estate would be valued over £650,000 and hence no Inheritance tax would be payable by your Granddaughter at all.I hope this helps.Kind RegardsAl
