Inheritance Boom Would Provide A Chance For Millennials To Reap Huge Rewards
Today’s’ young generation is soon to be hit by an unprecedented inheritance boom soon. But according to a think tank, such a boom would happen at a time that would be too late for many who have not been included in the property ladder and would also result in greater wealth inequality.
 
During the next two decades, there would be a two-fold increase in the incidents of inheritances, according to the Resolution Foundation. The peak for the inheritance boom is expected to research a crescendo by the year 2035 when the baby boomer generation – the people who have profited most from the huge rise in house and property prices – would be going through their old age.
 
“The large sums of wealth accumulated by older generations will provide a major boost to younger generations’ wealth accumulation and living standards in years to come,” said the foundation.
 
But those would be inheriting such properties would not be the one ones who would be first-time buyers. 61 years would be the age of the people who would inherit, said the Resolution Foundation.
 
According to the Halifax building society, the value of all of Britain’s home that is currently locked up is about £6 trillion. But when that health is passed on to the younger generation, it would reusltl in wealth inequality, said the thinktank.
 
Property is much likely not to be passed on to those millennials who do not possess a house yet. Parents of almost half (46%) of those young people who do not own a home at present also do not have a house of their own. In comparison, 83% of millennials who own a house now also have parents with a house of their won.
 
A strong relationship exists between property wealth and that of their parents for young adults, the foundation said. While millennials who are yet to own a house  of their own have parents who have property worth of £85,000 per sibling on an average, millennials who possess their own property worth £200,000 or more also have parents who have property wealth of about £195,000 per sibling.
 
“The role of inheritance in driving up already large absolute asset gaps between richer and poorer members of younger generations is an issue deserving of much more attention,” said the foundation.
 
The rise in inheritance tax (IHT) receipts is also likely to benefit the Treasury. In 2017/18 the IHT will touch £ 5.3 billion while it is expected to reach around £6.5 billion by the fiscal year of 2022/23, according to estimates of the Office for Budget Responsibility.
