If your husband is going onto the title and the mortgage, even if that is for no consideration there could be stamp duty to pay. The amount of the mortgage he is taking on is deemed to be the consideration. So it would be calculated on one half of the amount of the remortgage sum. If that is less than the exempt amount for stamp duty then it won’t apply. How much is the remortgage?
Provided that one half of the mortgage is less than the current stamp duty threshold there is nothing in law to stop you transferring half the title to your husband’s name and taking a remortgage in joint names. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited for my time.
There isn’t going to be stamp duty of half of the value of the remortgage is less than the stamp duty threshhold, currently £125000.
As long as you give him a very small share, ie, £40000 or less.
