I have missed the 3 month deadline to reclaim the 3% extra SDLT paid.
My solicitor told me I had 3 years to sell my main home but never mention a deadline. He dealt with both cases.
Bought 2nd property on 6th September 2016.
Sold main home on 30th June 2017.
Deadline date was 30th September 2017 and I tried to reclaim in it Dec 17.
IS there any appeal reason or loop hole I can use?
I thought my solicitor has a ‘due care and attention’ which he clearly has not showed here. As he was fully aware my intention to sell main home and reclaim the 3% – He main it sound like I had 3years to reclaim. When I question him after I got rejected he was completely unaware and said he’s not a tax expert.
Surely, he should not be submitting the returns for clients then?
Is there anyway I can get the tax back – it’s £20k and relying on it to pay back money owed.
