Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
Hi.Have you had the Decree Absolute? If so, when was it issued? Was the arrangement you came to with your former husband over the marital home part of the divorce settlement? Does your former husband own another home? If so, has he lodged an election for the that property to be treated as his main home with HM Revenue & Customs? If so, when did he do that?
hi, yes decree absolute was 15 months ago. The arrangement is that I would undertake to remove his name from the marital home, which I have not tried to do yet as worried about tax implications. He has since bought a buy to let property, which was bought by the proceeds of a sale of investment property in order to give him his 'share of equity' from marital home, also I gave up maintenance payments and his pension. Do not know if he lodged and election for another home to be treated as main home, will have to ask him but suspect not, as he is living in current partners home.
