Hello, I am Keith, one of the experts on Just Answer, and pleased to be able to help you with your question.
If no consideration passes ie no money changes hands then there is no stamp duty payable on this inter spousal transfer.
I do hope that I have been able to set your mind at reat on this matter.
Here is the opinion form the Money Advice Service:
'If you transfer the deeds of your home to someone else – either as a gift or in your will – they won’t have to pay Stamp Duty on the market value of the property. ;
But there is no consideration this no stamp duty.
I will opt out.
I have opted out; this post is just to clear my question list.
