Question:

Hi there,
I am considering selling half my apartment to a friend to free up some cash but am not sure about the costs. She will be charged a tax when buying half (20% or so?) and will then be charged a capital gain tax if we sell within 5 years (and only her half will have the capital gain if I've owned the apartment for 7 years?).

Thanks so much,
Amanda

Answer:

Dear Janine,

Unfortunately, I cannot determine from your email what country you live in so it is impossible for me to comment on the tax implications of buying and selling and apartment.

Sincerely,
David Kuenzi
