Most people think that inheriting property is an easy process, a lottery-like reward with little to no hassle.


In fact, that’s rarely the case. While at first it may feel like a blessing, inheriting a property may actually throw up all sorts of issues that you hadn’t considered such as:

  • Do you want to live in it yourself, rent it out or sell actually sell the property?
  • What are the tax implications involved?
  • Have you jointly inherited the property and what do the other parties want to do with it?
  • Can you afford to keep the property after paying inheritance tax?

Putting any sentimental value aside, often the simplest answer is to sell. And with this decision you will avoid the complications of letting it, joint ownership and the prospect of any emotional stress of continuing to deal with a loved one’s property.
