    Just a quick question, does anyone have any experience of dealing with the transfer of home ownership in a will?

    Without going into too much detail, i am trying to understand if there are any costs associated with being left a % of a house after the death of a relative.

    Can you be a bit more specific?

    Was the person leaving the house the last survivor or did they leave a % but still have a living spouse?

    You would be unlikely to pay any tax if that's what you mean unless the estate was above the IHT limit.

    I have.
    What do you want to know?

    If IHT is due on the estate it has to be paid within 6 months and the executors cannot get probate until it is paid.
