My mum and I are joint owners of our only property. If we sold that property and the brought another property of equivalent price but only this time, I am the only person on the deeds of the new house, are there any tax implications?
Hi! I am a qualified solicitor in England and Wales. I will be assisting you with your query today. I may need to ask a few questions before I can address your query.Please bear in mind this is a chat service and there may be delays in responding due to assisting other customers.
You will be required to pay stamp duty on the new property depending on the value of the property. Currently there is no stamp duty payable until March 2021 if the value of the property is £500,000 or lower.I hope that answers your query. If not please feel free to ask follow up questions.

If I bought a second property less in value and the remaining amount was lent to a business or family members would that attract any tax?
No there are no tax implications. If your expecting capital gains tax that is only applicable if you sell a property that is not your home. Which is not thag case here.If you wish give some money to a family member that will simply be a loan. And you can charge interest should you wish. This has no tax implications either.

It may do as you would be required to report the change.
