My mother died and left a property to my 2 siblings and me. If I try to buy my sibling out at £500000 each and I retain my third, how much IHT will I have to pay. Can I refer this payment or pay in instalments? How will Stamp Duty be calculated and how much extra will that be? thank you. Steve
Assistant: The Accountant will know how to help. Is there anything else the Accountant should be aware of?
Customer: The house was under offer, but he buyer doesn't seem to have the money to pay for it. No deposit or contract has been signed. If I offer to buy now the Estate Agent will expect fees as in their contract they had a possible purchase agreed. Will I have to pay this. The offer is £2.4 million But their is a dispute over the entrance and the purchaser is using this to reduce the price
