Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Its bad news I am afriad.
As you are partners then unless you have any agreement as to the ownership that says otherwise, you are equal owners.
This means your boyfriend will be liable for tax on his half and you on yours.
But from what I understand you are unlikely to pay tax.
But sadly you can not shift his portion on to you.
For more information please see:
I am sorry this is not the answer you want and it is certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Thank you for your answer. Can you tell me when this changed exactly?
I don't sorry, as I looked it up for you on HMRC website.
Is there any way around this?
Unless you each own a different share of the property, unlikely.
If you owned, say 90% then you would be entitled to 90% of the income and tax liability
Again - is there anyway you can tell me when exactly this rule was brought in? I know it changed because it was one of the things we were advised to do BY Inland Revenue when I spoke to them many years ago.
I can't tell you the exact date, I just know that it is current.
Ok thank you for your help. That's all for now.
