Inheritance tax is one of the least popular levies with UK voters, polling has revealed
Britons have been taking out mortgages in an attempt to utilise an inheritance tax loophole.
Older homeowners can take out mortgages to minimise the amount of cash they need to hand over on their inheritance tax bill.
Borrowers appear to be primarily using the loophole to take mortgages out on a property which is owned outright.
It is then possible to give the cash from the mortgage to their children.
