Professional SDLT advice for companies, partnerships, trusts and individuals purchasing residential and/or non-residential land and property.

Stamp Duty Land Tax

Stamp Duty Land Tax Overview

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) is a complex tax and with the current land and property prices, it is a significant additional cost of purchase. Where more than one property is being purchased or there is a mix of residential and non-residential property and land then reliefs  are potentially available that could save you  significant SDLT costs – sometimes hundreds of thousands of pounds..

At Old Mill we offer straight forward  advice to provide purchasers with the peace of mind that they are paying the correct amount of SDLT and all relevant reliefs are claimed.  Our dedicated SDLT team understand the complex legislation and caselaw and can provide you with comprehensive advice when dealing with your property purchase. You can be sure you will pay the correct SDLT and that all available reliefs are claimed where the qualifying conditions are met. We will work closely with your solicitor/conveyancer in this process.

We understand that SDLT has to be paid within 14 days of completion and will ensure you receive our advice in a timely manner.

Based on the information provided by you, the estate agents, and your solicitor we will:

  • Provide a timely written report outlining whether any reliefs that are available and highlighting any risks.
  • Provide SDLT computations that show the tax position and tax savings potentially available.

We will be honest and inform you if we feel reliefs are not available to you.

A fixed fee will be agreed with you before any work is undertaken to ensure we provide you with the best service.
