Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
Hello, I am Keith, one of the experts on Just Answer, and pleased to be able to help you with your question.
You are absolutely correct, inter spousal transfers are outside the scope of UK taxation.
The sale of a sole or main domestic residence attracts Private Residence Relief (PRR) which is granted automatically and relieves any gain made at 100%. Many people do not realise that when they sell their houses and make a gain that there is a possible Capital Gains Tax (CGT) liability as for the majority PRR relieves that tax.
I do hope that I have been able to set your mind at rest on this matter.
Thank you for your support/
