Consideration needs to be given to the best way of owning property investments .

This will depend on a number of factors especially the tax rates of the respective owners.

A change may be beneficial if for example one partner is a higher rate tax payer and the other is not.

Perhaps the use of a Trust could benefit the family. This may depend on whether there is a mortgage.

Another factor is that on the ultimate sale there is an   annual exemption that is available to everyone .

Another suggestion is ownership through a company with different shareholdings.
