About Your Property and Inheritance Tax

Like most parts of London, Ealing has seen sharp growth on property prices over the last 20 years. These price rises, whilst good for homeowners in many ways, have also pushed many homes up into the Inheritance Tax (IHT) bracket.

IHT is 40% on the entire value of your estate above £325,000. If you are a married coupe this allowance doubles to £650,000.

Here are some examples:

Terraced property sold in Ealing (2019) = £823,784

  • IHT liability (single person) = £199,513
  • IHT liability (couple) = £69,513

Semi-detached property sold in Ealing (2019) = £1,044,889

  • IHT liability (single person) = £287,955
  • IHT liability (couple) = £157,955

How can I reduce by IHT liability?

There are lots of ways to manage this properly so that you don’t have to pay the full amount. You’ll need to book an appointment to discuss this with us as everyone has different individual circumstances.
