My Son lived at home with us in Surrey until he went to work in Canada 9 years ago. He bought a home there.
He has now returned to the UK after selling up in Canada and has bought a home in Yorkshire. He was charged 3% stamp duty.
QUESTION: As he is a first-time buyer in UK should he have been charged this tax?
Editors note: please see the flow chart below and the maximum term for a refund is now 3 years not 18 months.
