Buying your spouses half of the house


Les_J

Recommended Posts

We have a house which is currently jointly owned, with no mortgage. Sadly due to a change in marital circumstances I am considering purchasing my wifes half of the house. Has anyone any experience of this and any idea of what the notaires fees for this would be. Also as this seems to be a sale of half a property does French capital gains tax apply ???
Thanks
Les

There is something called "donation entre epoux" which I know virtually nothing about but have seen used when one partner is terminally ill and you wish to alter the inheritance pattern.

This may not be at all helpful in your case, but the notaire should be able to advise you of the best route.
