Buying a flat from a non-resident

Postby priyaplonka » Mon Oct 07, 2019 2:22 pm

I am looking to buy my dads flat. He used to live here in the UK but moved to India for retirement in 2010. He is definitively a non-resident as he only visits for a week or two every year.

He is fine with me buying the flat but asked me if I am allowed to pay him for the flat in India, from my Indian bank account. Is that allowed?

Thank you, Priya

It's OK in UK law (assuming land Registry are notified and any duty paid)
Can't comment on your father's tax position.
With a pinch of salt take what I say, but don't exceed your RDA
