Sally Jahangir – WIlls, Trusts & Probate
I am interested in tax and high value probates. I assisted clients to avoid capital gains tax for their second property, which was purchased in their names for their daughter to reside in.
The daughter had been through divorce proceedings, and if she owned the property and got remarried, and later divorced, then it would be part of the financial settlement. My clients wanted to avoid this and hence the property was in their names.
The Revenue accepted a trust existed. The property was purchased for the daughter’s benefit, and because she resided there meant that the main residence exemption for Capital Gains Tax was available.
Many thanks to Sally (Probate) and Rebecca (Conveyancing) and their respective Teams for all their assistance and guidance in the matter of my late Mother’s probate application and recent sale of her property. All concerned were very professional, diligent and knowledgeable thus making both processes run as smoothly as can be expected. We would have no hesitation recommending them both to anyone looking for similar legal expertise.
