Divorce & investment property

Divorce & investment property

Investing in rental properties jointly with your spouse or de facto partner can have tax implications in cases where the relationship ends.

Consider the situation from the perspective of someone who is facing this situation and is negotiating a 50 per cent stake of the net equity of the investment property (IP) portfolio purchased while together.

In this case, we’ll assume the couple have no children, so there are no child maintenance issues. From a tax perspective, the basic principles remain the same. We’ll also assume the couple are both professionally employed.
