How old is Mum please?
If "aged" (as defined - over 65.5) I would look at visa sub classes 864 and 804.
Both of these are onshore visas, so have a Bridging Visa entitlement, but have very different prices, and visa processing timelines.
If Mum isn't aged you are probably looking at a subclass 143 visa for Mum.
Feel able to send a message to me with your phone number if you would like me to call for a no obligation chat about Mum's visa strategy.
This is what we did, got PR, sold up and moved. Money transferred with moneycorp and now in savings. We didn't even think of capital gains tax so just looked it up on gov.UK and found this. We have just done our tax return and as we haven't earned the money abroad, it was transferred from one bank account to another, no tax to pay here either. No questions about transferred funds from another country on tax form so presume correct, can someone confirm for me please?
1. Private Residence Relief
You don’t pay Capital Gains Tax when you sell (or ‘dispose of’) your home if all of the following apply:
you have one home and you’ve lived in it as your main home for all the time you’ve owned it
you haven’t let part of it out - this doesn’t include having a single lodger
you haven’t used part of it for business only
the grounds, including all buildings, are less than 5,000 square metres (just over an acre) in total
you didn’t buy it just to make a gain
You don’t need to do anything. You’ll automatically get a tax relief called Private Residence Relief.
Hope this helps
