How should I own my property?

Reply to the comment left by "Garry Streeter" at "15/05/2014 - 13:04":

Hi Garry
If I were to own 90% of the property and my husband 10% as tenants in common and we complete form 17 to HMRC, I thought this allows us to be taxed on the property income & costs on the same basis. Isn't title and beneficial interest then the same ? Or am I missing something ?

On a separate point, my solicitor tells me its not essential to do a declaration of trust to specify ownership, it can simply be added to the purchase deed. Can anyone confirm that ?

Thanks in advance for your help.... Read More
