Capital Gains Tax, Stamp Duty..... Divorce


New to all of this so please bear with me.

Current situation we have 2 houses the Marital Home and a buy to let they are both owned 50/50 it is all very amicable (at the moment!) and we have decided my wife will keep the FMH while I will take on the buy to let details below:

Marital Home Value 800k no mortgage
Buy to let Purchased for 230k current value 450k mortgage 60k

We started the divorce process a year ago (just the filing) but havent pogressed it yet (no form Es exchanged etc. as both just been too busy and not really that bothered TBH) so what would be the most tax efficient way to do the transfers bearing in mind CGT and Stamp Duty? 

Should we withdraw the petition transfer the properties etc. or just plough on through, I am not planning on selling the Buy To Let ever as will move in once the mortgage is paid off.

Many thanks
