Arms Length Property Sale

  • Arms length sale of property.
  • Was the sale independent or did it involve an element of benevolence?
  • This is about whether a property was sold at market value as opposed to bequeathed to a beneficiary.
  • There are tax and legal implications see Capital Gains
  • This begs the question, was the sale merely a gift?
  • Independent valuations avoid such questions.

About the author


Formerly a student living in a rented room my vision focused on excellence. Letting phenomenal student houses soon became more than a day job - more a way of life.

Continuing to look after our tenants I subsequently also founded what is widely recognised as a phenomenal student lettings agency.
