Thank you for this. We feel let down by our solicitor but are not the sort who challenge things. We will look at HS283. We have been totally up front with the tax man so that's OK. Do you know if it might be worth my husband gifting half the house to me once the Land Registry respond? Do you know if that is a complicated procedure. Would the tax man accuse us of trying to avoid capital gains tax if we do that?
Thank you. We will look into this.
