How much money can be legally given to a family member as a gift UK?

Do I have to pay Inheritance Tax on my parents house UK?
There is normally no IHT to pay if you pass on a home, move out and live in another property for seven years. You need to pay the market rent and your share of the bills if you want to carry on living in it, otherwise you will be treated as the beneficial owner and it will remain as part of your estate.
Do you pay tax on money left to you in a will?
