Hi, thank you for your question. I do not see how there will be any tax liabilities for either properties:
1. The holiday home - you and your brother will be added to the title of the property and there is no payment for this transfer of a share of the title - therefore it will be considered a gift. In the event that the property is eventually sold, then there may be Capital Gains Tax liability depending on the use of the property.
2. Once you marry you will obtain matrimonial home rights and you will have a right to occupy the property until divorce. Furthermore, any transfers between husband and wife are not subject to taxation therefore if you were to be added to the title of the matrimonial home you will have no tax liability.
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for your question without a positive rating. Thank you
