Mum passed away 9 months ago , My bro and I inherited her bungalow and monies in equal shares. In order to keep what was her bungalow insured etc, we put the deeds of the bungalow into our joint names ( his and mine) The actual 'pound note' monies remain in the bank, I have executed her will and what is left is to be split between us. Now comes the problem Example figures.... Bungalow is in joint name at worth 200k ( example) Money in executors acc = 200k My brother wants his share of the cash and his share of the bungalow. I don't have a problem with either.... Because the bungalow is in joint names, I have to 'buy him out' with my share from the bank. ( so its as broad as its long , money and bungalow= same value) in doing this, I am going to get clobbered for stamp duty!! can anyone see a way round this??
