I want to ideally gift a property owned by me to my son, without incurring captial gains tax. If i take a charge on the property will this help maybe to reduce cgt and iht?

CGT not my area but I imagine you could move that below the limit each year too.
If you make a larger gift you might want to talk to an IFA about Gifts Inter Vivos insurance to pay the IHT if you expire with 7 years of making the gift.
