Government forcing landlords to house non-paying tenants for lengthy periods11:18 AM, 15th September 2020

I bought a sheltered accommodation property for my mum to live in some years ago and is unencumbered. I now wish to transfer part of it to my brother each year to use up my capital gains and will do this by declaration of trust.
I could register it at land registry, but with these properties if there is an assignment of ownership there is a fee to pay of 1% of the value of the property and I do not want to risk paying this.
I therefore do not intend to register the DOT, but wanted to check that it will still be good enough for HMRC when working out gains when selling?
