Myself and my fiancee rent in London and due to the astronomical property prices here, we decided in Dec 2014 to purchase a buy-to-let residential investment in Northern Ireland. It completed in April 2015.
We’re now in the process of buying our first residential home together in NI also with a view of moving back to NI towards the end of the year.
We have never lived in or owned our own home.
Our mortgage broker had previously advised us that we’d be exempt from the 3% “second home” stamp duty surcharge but now he’s not so sure.
Can anyone clarify?
