SDLT on tenants in common split 99% to 1%

Hi Kais

Mark Alexander is right, I think you need some professional advice on this.
It may be that you can avoid SDLT by
1. Using a deed of trust and passing your wife part of your beneficial interest.
2. Remortgaging your other property sufficiently to repay all the mortgage on this property. you could then gift her 50% free of SDLT as no SDLT is payable on gifted property free of mortgage.

£23,750 is a lot of tax to find especially when most of it can be avoided and can pay for a lot of advice to do just that.

Hi Gary

I love your style. I always read your comments with glee. I have been a landlord for 20 years but could never be as hardnosed as you, it's just not my nature. However I can get close to it if the rent is paid late. If the rent is only two days late I start texting or telephoning to find out the excuses. Once rent gets behind it is almost impossible for the tenant to make up.

Keep up the comments.

Vandalism of Period Features

I like them and indeed I had one myself years ago. However I wouldn't replace it for tenants if it was immaculate as it will cost a lot to replace and you are only receiving rent of £400 per month. On a practical nature if you live in a hard water area it will be a nightmare to keep clean and show limescale and water stains very easily as all the coloured bathroom suites did. For that reason it probably won't stand the test of time with tenants.... Read More
