Joining of houses by purchasing next-door?Make Text Bigger
I have recently purchased my neighbours house with the hope of one day connecting them together. Our son is wheelchair bound and needs tremendous additional support and equipment hence the future plan.
However, after using up just about all funds I can access the work on joining the houses will probably not happen for at least a year or so and in the mean time I’d probably rent it to a friend.
My question is when I come to pay my stamp duty do I declare it a second home and then try to claim it back once the houses are joined? or as a (future) main residence ?
