I wondered if anyone could advise me on a question relating to the 3% surcharge on SDLT for additional properties and in particular when replacing a main residence.
I currently own three properties (my main residence and two buy to let properties). If I was to replace my main residence this year by purchasing a new property, but within 3 years of this sell my previous main residence to my ltd company will I be eligible to recover the additional 3% surcharge on SDLT which will have been payable at the time of the new purchase (on the basis that I was replacing my main residence and no longer own the original main residence in my name)?

HM Revenue and Customs must have your request within 3 months of the sale of your previous main residence or within 12 months of the filing date of the return, whichever’s later.
