Hi, I'm sorry I've only just seen your post.

1) David has sold to his wife on a no loss no gain basis. Therefore answer is £0

2) Marie has sold to her Father, they are connected, so use market value. Thus -
[20000 - (cost) 8300] - (AEA) 11100 = 600. Marie is a HR taxpayer, therefore the gain is taxed at 20%, giving £120.

3) Now, Lou and her neighbour are unconnected, therefore use actual proceeds.
[42000 - (cost) 20650] - (AEA) 11100 = 10250. Now, Lou has £4000 left in her basic band so £4000 x 10% and [£10250 - £4000] x 20% gives a total of £1650.

I hope that is of some use to you.
