CGT and PPR relief following divorce

House in joint names transferred from ex spouse following divorce

Didn't find your answer?

A client has recently sold a residential property bought many years ago with ex-husband.   2 or 3 years after divorce the ex husband's share was transferred to her as a result of a court order.   Later, she moved out and rented the property out.

Questions:   

1.   Do the two halves have to be reported as separate transactions when reporting the gains?

2.   As the transfer was under a court order, am I correct in believing that this is not a bargain made at arm's length and so market value kicks in?

3.   For the half transferred, am I correct in thinking that the period of ownership starts at the date of the court order, thus increasing the proportion of the taxable period.?

Thanks
