Re: Stamp duty & mobile home

Yes, it seems that as the extra 3% should never have been paid, the 12 month time limit following the sale of the mobile home is irrelevant. It is “overpayment relief” she needs to look into, there is a little guidance on it. As you say the time limit there is 4 years from the transaction which incu...

Re: Complication resulting from Single ownership of a Freehold property

It is fairly common for lenders to want to take as security individual units of accommodation, not a building comprising several dwellings. So it might be that the way to structure your selling out your interest is by way of two long leases at low rents granted by you and your brother to your brothe...

Re: First home - should I pay higher SDLT?

Yes, higher rates unless you first sell (or otherwise dispose of) the let property. You would not be able to reclaim the extra 3% if you sell / dispose of the let property after your purchase goes through.

Re: SDLT on Shared Ownership

The SDLT for staircasing out in one go would be £4,066 assuming: A payment of £62,500 in 2014 for a 25% share. A payment of £240,000 now (75% of the mid figure of £320,000). These total £302,500. SDLT at today’s rates on £302,500 would be £5,125. But you pay a fraction of that. The fraction is 240,0...

Re: Second Property Stamp Duty - 40K Rule

If the property being bought is in Wales then Land Transaction Tax has a rule aggregating the interests of spouses in this scenario. There is no such rule for SDLT. See the Adam and Eve example here: https://www.blakemorgan.co.uk/sdlt-surcharge-on-additional-residential-properties-updated-guidance/

Re: Buy next door house, change boundary and sell again

Yes. There is a subsale relief, now called pre completion transaction relief, if you can line up the onwards sale of most of the property to complete at the same time as your purchase of the whole.

Re: FTB But also BTL....help needed

You will not qualify for first time buyers’ relief on either property. You do not get it on the first as you do not intend to live in it. When you buy the second, well, it is your second!! The first property will be liable to SDLT at standard rates. On £120k that is zero as SDLT at standard rates st...

Re: Linked transactions & 3% additional rate

You are right to think that the transaction might be viewed as a single transaction for SDLT purposes, even with the “breaking down”. If it is a number of linked transactions then yes, one might be at higher rates, the others at standard. The maths is a little complicated. But is the big issue here ...

Re: Are we FTBs? previously named on mortgage, no beneficial interest - help please!

If J has no beneficial interest in G’s house then he should still be able to qualify as a first time buyer.

You should be able to get a copy of the transfer of the property to J and G from the Land Registry. If you are lucky that will confirm that it was held on trust for G alone.

Re: SDLT on BTL Property Transfer to Spouse

The chargeable consideration is any cash changing hands (zero presumably) and a proportion of the mortgage debt. So perhaps 90% of approx £120,000.
