Tax with Tallon: Topical tax PPR and civil partners
Paula Tallon, director of direct tax with Chiltern, responds to accountants' queries.
I have acted for my client for the last 10 years and during that time he has resided at Wells House. Last year he entered into a civil partnership with Martin and shortly afterwards he transferred a 50% stake in the property to him. Martin had lived with him for 2 years before that. They are now looking at selling the property but I am concerned that Principal Private Residence (PPR) relief may not be available.
