New SDLT Rules Can Help Smaller Landlords

HI Mark

I am trying to pay my SDLT after the transfer of 50% of my BTL property to my wife (as my solicitor refused to acknowledge the reduced stamp duty %). Does this need to come from me or from my wife who is receiving 50% of the property or does it not matter as we are a married couple.

I don't mind paying a fee for a conveyancer to pay it , is this something that your company does? or can I just ask a conveyancer to complete (my conveyancer will not do it despite me confirming with HMRC that they are wrong)... Read More

My concern is that they inputted my details into the HMRC SDLT calculator and it didnt spit out the figures per the new amendment. I guess i shoulld call HMRC and specifically ask the question as my conveyance has said that I can pay the Stamp duty directly to HMRC rather than through them... Read More

When transferring part of the Buy to Let property to my wife (basic tax payer) and where the mortgage consideration transfer is above £125k

(I) does the portion under £125k still incur SDLT at 0%?
(Ii) for the portion above £125k, is the SDLT amount at 3% or 5%. ?... Read More
