I understand that my fiancee needs to pay capital gain tax on a second property which she will become jont buy to let mortgage signee with myself. In order not to pay capital gain tax, do we need to get married before completing on this deal or is there a periond which we need to get married post a deal? Both of us are high rate tax payers.

Hello, I am one of the experts on Just Answer and pleased to be able to help you with your question.

It would be best if this transaction were undertaken before marriage took place.

OK. Surely by getting married it would allow us to transfer equity of the property without paying CGT?

Agreed, but the subsequent sale will cause complications anyway.
