    We will act as your “tax agent” for the purposes of SDLT in connection with your purchase. This means that we will complete the Land Tax Return form on your behalf, and we will submit the return online. By agreeing to our terms and conditions, you are also agreeing to authorise us to enter the date of completion of your purchase as the effective date of the transaction for the purposes of SDLT. We will submit the form electronically  to HM Revenue and Customs, together with your payment of the tax due, immediately after completion has taken place.

  • Stamp Duty

    Stamp Duty has been calculated at the rates at this time and on the basis that this is not the purchase of a second home or buy-to-let property.  If this is not the case please let us know as different Stamp Duty rates will apply.

    Since the budget in November 22nd 2017 purchases by first time buyers are exempt from SDLT if the purchase price is below £300,000.00

    If this does apply to you will not be required to pay the Stamp Duty detailed above.

    In order to count as a first time buyer, a purchaser must not, either alone or with others, have previously acquired a major interest in a dwelling or an equivalent interest in land situated anywhere in the world.

    This includes previous acquisitions by inheritance or gift, or by a financial institution on behalf of a person under an alternative finance scheme.

    Relief is not denied by virtue of a previous acquisition as a trustee unless the purchaser was also a beneficiary of the trust.

    Relief is also not denied if the purchaser owns or has previously owned non-residential or mixed-use property, as long as that property did not include a dwelling.

    This restriction does not apply where the interest acquired was the grant or assignment of a lease with less than 21 years to run.

    If the property is purchased jointly, all the purchasers must meet these conditions.

  • Tax implications

    Whilst we will be dealing with the legal aspects of this transaction to ensure that the legal estate is transferred validly, we are not in a position to advise you on any possible tax consequences of the transaction. If you are concerned that there may be such consequences, we would strongly advise you to seek the assistance of an accountant.

  • Updates

    It is common in transactions for us to keep interested parties e.g. site offices/estate agents updated with the progress of your purchase, to assist in moving it to a prompt conclusion. Please let us know if you do not wish us to do this.

  • Searches

    Although we have obtained the local search, it is important that you realise the limitations on the result of the search. Whilst some matters, for example possible road developments within 200 metres of the property are covered, no planning information that does not specifically relate to the property you are acquiring will be revealed. If you are concerned about possible development in the surrounding area, you should contact the local planning authority direct. If you have any further queries about what is and is not covered by the search, please let me know.

    We do not carry out individual searches on each plot of the development but have carried out the searches your lender requires to purchase your new property on the whole development (including your property) and our fees for provision and reporting on these searches are detailed above.

  • Surveys

    If the Property is new build the survey is not really necessary as the property will have the benefit of a New Build guarantee (e.g. Zurich or NHBC) which guarantees the structure of the Property. If you have a mortgage lender assisting you with your purchase, they will carry out a valuation of the property as part of your mortgage application.

  • Gifted Deposit

    If you are receiving a gifted deposit from a family member or another party in we will have to carry out additional checks on the identity of the donors and the source of these funds, there will therefore be an additional fee of £50 + VAT payable upon completion for each donor.

    Please note your lender may require a bankruptcy search to be undertaken against each person making the monetary gift, bankruptcy searches are £2 per person and if required the amount for the search will be added to the final completion statement.
