Hello and welcome to the site. Thank you for your question.

Please advise
- the money worth of your share of this property.
- are you giving away this share for nothing in return as a gift?

Many thanks

My share value would be £200.000 approx
I am giving for no financial payment

Margaret, thank you for your prompt reply.

As recipients of a gift, your brother and sister would receive the gift free of tax.

There is no tax on gifts in the UK.

You should be aware this gift would be regarded as a potentially exempt transfer for inheritance tax purposes and the seven years rule applies. In simple terms, if you survive for 7 years after giving the gift, the gift is exempt from inheritance tax and does not form part of the estate.

More information on 7-year rule can be found here
