    If I buy IP with my brother together under tenancy in common, 50-50 share.Then after some years, I'd like to own it 100% under my own name, will there be any stamp duty involved?

    Watch this space and I will update you shortly as my brother and I purchsed together and I am just about to buy him out so need a readjustment on stamp duty. Although we are also subdividing and I am buying him out of the land part which will be quite low so not sure how exactly it will look.

    It will be a CGT event as well.

    If the plan is to do this for financing reasons then perhaps a 10%/90% share is worth considering as this will lessen the immediate costs - if he has the 10%

    Was this directed at myself Terry? If so I think we have had this conversation a few times now :)

    No it was for Bonza. If she is planning something short term then costs could be minimised. But it depends on the reasons as the profits for the10% holder would also be minimised.
