# I have rounded figures . I need to check my

### Resolved Question:

I have rounded figures for simplicity. I need to check my thinking
My parents are purchasing a property for 360,000 in cash.
They wish to put me on the deeds of the house and allocate a value of 1/3 (120000) to me.
I believe that providing my parents live beyond 7 years of the date of the transfer there is no tax to pay here.
In the event of one of them dying, their share (120000) will be left to the other partner with no tax to pay meaning that the surviving parent will have 240000.
In the event of that parent passing away they will leave the 240000 to me which is under the IHT limit and therefore will not attract a tax payment.
So in the above example I can be put on the deeds and allocated a share of the value without attracting a tax liability.
In the event that the house goes up in value and the 240000 that I inherit at the end has increased to in excess of the current threshold I understand that I would liable for 40% tax on that.
However if for example my father left the 120000 above and nothing else am I right in thinking that the remainder of his allowance (325000 at present - 120000 = 205000) would be transferrable to my mother meaning that when she passed away the allowance to me would be 530000 (325000 + 205000)?
Complicated I know but hope that makes sense.

Hi Keith, thank you for your response.So to reaffirm my slightly addled brain1. If my parents live beyond the 7 years there is no tax to pay on the 1200002. If they do not then if the full amount of 120000 is below the current iHT limit (I would not inherit anything else if one parent died as they would leave all to the other) there is no tax to pay regardless of the 7 year limit3. When the other parent passes away I would inherit the 240000 - if this happened inside 7 years I would be liable for tax on the 360000 (if any of it above the IHT limit). If outside 7 years and IHT limit higher than 360000 then no tax liability at allIs that right - sorry if not clear

1. Correct. 2. Correct, the PET would not raise the estate above the 325K so there would be no IHT due. 3. If the other parent dies within the seven year period then the PET is added back to their estate. Remember the PET runs off at a taper over the seven years so this may still not breach the 325K plus whatever tax free allowance has been inherited from the first partner to pass on. Also you incur no liability under the PET if the estate can meet the IHT in any event. Please be so kind as to rate me before you leave the just Answer site.
