Online SDLT Submission for a leasehold property

Postby jamiecole » Thu Jun 02, 2022 10:52 am


So I have been filling in the stamp duty submission for a leasehold property.

For the "Description of the transaction" I get the impression that I select A - based on the guidance here:

For "Interest transferred or created" I select Long Leasehold at a ground rent with vacant possession (its a 125 year leasehold flat, vacant).

I then receive questions titled "About the Lease". I can fill these in, but when you produce the PDF return the section "ABOUT NEW LEASES" is populated. This isn't a new lease? Have I done something wrong?
