HIThank you of your questionMy name is ***** ***** do my best to help you but I need some further informtaion first.Is there mortgage on the property?How long has she lived there?
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
It was bought in her name but I paid the deposit. There was a mortgage, the repayments on which I was responsible for though paid to her, then she paid the mortgage company. The mortgage has been paid off (September 2015). The arrangement was because of my poor credit score at the time. We have a written agreement in place stating the principles of the arrangement. I'd like the deeds to be transferred into my name. Thanks.
Expert:  Clare replied 7 months ago.
How much was the property worth when she purchased it and how much is it worth now?
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Bought for £310,000 but was on the market at £325,000. Probably worth £350,000 now. She did not invest in the house at all.
Expert:  Clare replied 7 months ago.
Did she live there at all?
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Never...
Expert:  Clare replied 7 months ago.
In that case she can transfer this property to you using a TR1 and an AP1 You and your sister will also have to complete ID1 formshttps://www.gov.uk/guidance/completing-forms-id1-and-id2There will be a Land Registry fee to pay.However it is unlikely that there will be any Capital Gains Tax liability unless your sister has made other gains in the last few yearsPlease ask if you need further details
