I have two daughters who will inherit equally. I have taken out Equity Release (ER) on my property - current value 450K. I have a term assurance policy with 14 years to run to more than cover the equity release made out in trust to both the girls. Am I right in thinking that : 1. the policy does not form part of my estate therefore will not be liable for inheritance tax 2. Inheritance tax will only be payable on the remaining value of the property after the ER has been repaid even though this will be done by means of the insurance policy.
