The inheritance is tax paid so any CGT will be only be due (when selling) on anything positive from the "aquistion" price and the selling price. This might take quite a while in the current markets to get bigger than the CGT allowance... That's assuming this house doesn't become your primary residence as they are CGT excempt...
Everyone ought to be planning how to reduce the amount their estate has to pay to HMG, but many don't. What are you going to do with the house before you sell? Live in it, second home, rent it out, or just take stock and sell soon? Have you any kids? Might be worth passing it on to them if your estate(s) are already banging into IHT.
It can get complicated depending on what assets are already held and whose name(s) those assets are held by. "Tennants in Common" I think is the legal phrase, means that the property automaticly passes to the survivor without being part of the deceased estate but it does then become part of the survivors estate, which might not be the best thing if they have a significant estate of their own. Also there are legal definitions of who is decreed to have died first and thus how things shift if you are both die at the same time.
But not just any accountant, one specialising in personal tax is required and the solicitor needs to know about personal affairs, Wills, Lasting Power of Attorney, etc
It's not so much complicated as lots of gotchas that vary depending on circumstances.
