I am confused. You say that after your Mother in law's decease her house is passing to your brother in law. How then does your wife get involved receiving 82K?
Got it,;I do not see any problem, as far as I can see the mortgage deed value will be below the Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) threshold.
I would suggest that a written note of the transfer and its reason be maintained to head off any possible, but unlikely, inquiries.
A cautionary tale: my late ex Father in Law [Eddie] received a string of letters from the Inland Revenue as it was then asking if he had declared all his income for tax. After a bit he wrote back saying that he was not very good at guessing games and would that Department come to the point. It transpired that another party had told the taxman that Eddie had given him a large sum of money. Absolutely correct, Eddie had been the executor of yet another person's will! Moral, a paper trail does no harm!
Delighted to have been of assistance.
Thank you for your support.
