Can we get out of paying stamp duty tax?


SDLT is due for property purchases sold for more than £125,000. We do not recommend any stamp duty mitigation, as such schemes are highly expensive and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed . There have been a number of government-sponsored schemes, on the other hand, such as higher thresholds for first-time buyers. A conveyancing solicitor should confirm whether you are eligible.


What will the council tax cost me on a Victorian Band an apartment in Rainham?

When is it wise to arrange a conveyancer to handle our purchase?


The short answer is, the faster you instruct the better. Prompt instruction of a firm for a purchase can mean that your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed, or, if you are selling a property, paperwork can be prepared, even before a buyer is found.
