Hello, it is difficult to say for certain. If the local authority look into this they may decide that it amounts to 'deprivation of assets' and they do have power to set these transactions aside.

We do not recommend that you transfer all of your property out of your names, children are subject to divorce and bankruptcy which can make you vunerable to losing your home.
