HelloIf wife passes on the half to the daughter (or someone else), it’s treated as a gift and the 7-year rule applies.She must live for 7 years after giving the gift. Any gifts made less than 7 years before death count towards the Inheritance Tax threshold (£325,000). They count towards the threshold before the rest of the estate.If the transfer is a gift and there’s no consideration, SDLT doesn’t normally apply to the daughter.After you view my response, please post below if you need more information or if you need no further clarification a positive rating is appreciated.I know rating takes an additional step and I truly appreciate it when you take the extra time!

Hi There also may be capital gains IF there has been an increase in the value of the property between probate and your wife transferring her share to your daughter (even if no money changes hand) This is in addition to the advise that Tax Robin has given you. Let me know what any profit of value might be - and I will happily work out the capital gain position for you. Thanks Sam
