“The transferable nil-rate band means that when you pass away, your surviving spouse will inherit any of your unused inheritance tax allowance, potentially allowing them later to pass on up to £650,000 tax-free.

“This amount that can grow to £1million if a married couple leaves their home to their children or grandchildren on the second death, provided the estate is worth less than £2million.”
