IHT on residence left to wife and children

when is IHT payable and what valuation is is payable on?

Didn't find your answer?

Husband has died and has left the PPR 40% to his (second) wife and 60% to his (not her) children. Widow has the right to occupy for life.

It seems that solicitor has said that this is treated as 100% to wife on husband's death and only when the widow dies does the 60% come into charge.

Is this correct? If so, will IHT be payable by husband's estate after widow dies on 2019 value or value a tthe time of widow's death?

Suggest you swot up on leases for life.
