I hope I can assist you, as my colleague has opted out.
As you are unmarried, any gift of 50% of the property to your partner will be liable for CGT (you are deemed to give him 50% of the market value of the property, even if you are not receiving any monetary consideration from him).
If you were then to sell the Property, you would also be liable to CGT on your remaining 50% share.
Therefore, you are in the same position for CGT purposes whether you gift 50% or keep the property in your sole name.
I am sorry this is not the answer you were looking for.
If I have answered your question, I would be grateful if you could leave positive feedback.
I hope I have assisted.
