Regulation 22

SCHEDULEEQUIVALENT WEEKLY VALUE OF A TRANSFER OF A PROPERTY

1.  (1)  Subject to paragraphs 3 and 4, the equivalent weekly value of a transfer of property shall be calculated by multiplying the value of a transfer of property determined in accordance with regulation 22(1) and (2) by the relevant factor specified in the Table set out in paragraph 2 (“the Table”).

(2) For the purposes of sub-paragraph (1), the relevant factor is the number in the Table at the intersection of the column for the statutory rate and of the row for the number of years of liability.

(3) In sub-paragraph (2)—

(a)“the statutory rate” means interest at the statutory rate prescribed for a judgment debt(1) or, in Scotland, the statutory rate in respect of interest included in or payable under a decree in the Court of Session(2), which in either case applies at the date of the court order or written agreement relating to the transfer of the property;

(b)“the number of years of liability” means the number of years, beginning on the date of the court order or written agreement relating to the transfer of property and ending on—

(i)the date specified in that order or agreement as the date on which maintenance for the youngest child in respect of whom that order or agreement was made shall cease; or

(ii)if no such date is specified, the date on which the youngest child specified in the order or agreement reaches the age of 18,

and where that period includes a fraction of a year, that fraction shall be treated as a full year if it is either one half or exceeds one half of a year, and shall otherwise be disregarded.

2.  The Table referred to in paragraph 1(1) is set out below—

3.  The equivalent weekly value of the property transferred shall be nil if the value of the transfer of the property is less than £5,000.

5.  In this Schedule, “maintenance” has the same meaning as in paragraph 3(2) of Schedule 4B to the Act.
