In general, fixtures are permanently fixed to the property and cannot be easily removed, whereas fixtures are easier to detach or remove.

Q.

Homeward Legal do not recommend home buyers risk any form of stamp duty mitigation, because these schemes are costly and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed .
