Not sure if this is a question for here or for legal? I would like to buy two adjacent properties, that are currently owned by two separate individuals. They are really only of benefit to me if I get both. The owner of property A wants to sell in this tax year, as they have traded from the property and therefore will benefit from the 10% CGT. The owner of property B wants to sell after 5 April, so that they only pay CGT at 18% as they would otherwise get negligible taper. I cannot exchange on B in this tax year (when I have to complete on A) as that would crystallise the B vendor's CGT liability, unless as I understand it, the contract has "conditions precedent" that do not get met until next tax year. Does anybody have experience of how I can have a watertight agreement to buy B at the point that I buy A? Thanks in advance.
