😯 if they both liable for ctax – then they get 50% each – if they both resident – and both still own it then they will both be liable.
The partner of a laible person is jointly and severally liable- but as they are splitting up they would probably argue that they arent partners.(though its down to ctax to decise who is liable)
Crux of matter – who owns the house – a resident owner is top of hierachy – if they jointly own (which may alter once they are divorced) then they cant have more than 50% ctb each. On what grounds is he appealing??? Is she isnt listed as a liable person (and she doesnt jointly own it) then yep – he should get 100% ctb with a non dep charge for her.
