    The amount is within the IHT nil rate band so taper wouldn’t apply.

    But in any event, this is a loan not a gift. If the loan is repayable on demand there is no “transfer of value” for IHT...

    It isn’t ideal at all.

    The OP’s brother may well be conflicted - on the one hand the anti social behaviour and interrupted sleep, and on the other hand the stress caused by confrontation.
