Special rules: settled property - sales and mortgages of reversionary interests
There is a further relief, which is included only for completeness as you are unlikely to see it in practice. It relates to the tax charge:
- on the cesser of an interest in possession (IHTM16061)
- where a reversionary interest in the settled property (IHTM16231) was sold or mortgaged before 27 March 1974.There is a tax relief (
IHTM16232) in these circumstances.
The relief is applied in the same way as that afforded by IHTA84/S40 (2)(d) FA 1969 for estate duty. Any sum repayable under this practice would not carry interest.
