Capital gains tax and inheritance laws in Geneva & Vaud

Our family is considering buying a house in the Swiss Romand and are curious to know what are the capital gains taxes are like in the 2 cantons and similarly- inheritance laws and taxes. I know that there is a law about how you can dispose of your assets and that Geneva fairly recently abolished inheritance taxes for direct descendants (how direct?) and that Vaud has not but is supposedly considering it?? Any reliable details would be most appreciated.

Thanks

Jen
