Can private landlords refuse to let to Housing Benefit claimants?13:36 PM, 14th October 2020

I have had some success in obtaining refunds on overpaid or wrongly paid SDLT on properties I had bought in a limited company and I wondered if any others had had a similar experience.
We were surprised at how easy the application process was although I couldn’t find the information on the Revenue website and the solicitors I had used for many years had never heard of the refund process being available.
I am wondering has anybody else had the experience of obtaining SDLT refunds, did they find the process simple, have they made many applications, how long did it take from start to finish etc.? Given how much of a burden SDLT can be in terms of costs to a deal, presumably many people will be keen to apply for SDLT refunds.
