My 44-year-old son, my only child, lives with me in France in our home. The property is worth around €200,000, which means that on my death he would have inheritance tax to pay on around €100,000 of itHe does not earn a lot and there will be no cash left in my estate. I have been told that if he does not pay the tax within six months he would be forced to sell the property and would effectively be homeless. Are there any steps that I can take to avoid this? tax to pay on around €100,000 of it.
