Buying land to extend garden – is there a way to avoid stamp duty?Make Text Bigger
We are in the process of buying a small plot of land to the rear of our garden with a view to knocking down a wall and making the garden bigger.
Our solicitor has advised us that we will be liable for stamp duty on this purchase as the land is to be added to an existing garden attached to our property. This is the only property we own. Is there a way in which we can buy the land and avoid paying stamp duty – maybe we avoid stating what the land will be used for? We are not planning to build on it.
