Multiple Dwellings Relief (MDR)

Unlock significant Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) savings by claiming Multiple Dwellings Relief (MDR) when purchasing two or more dwellings in a single transaction. However, HMRC often challenges MDR claims, making it crucial to ensure compliance with their requirements. Our comprehensive property report confirms the eligibility and extent of your MDR claim, providing valuable documentation to address HMRC inquiries effectively.

Determining whether a property purchase involves a combination of residential and non-residential components can be deceptively intricate. Our team examines relevant legislation and case law decisions to determine the viability of a mixed-use claim. Trust our expertise to assess your situation accurately and advise on the appropriate course of action.


Additional Property Surcharge

Since April 1, 2016, the introduction of the 3% Additional Property Surcharge has significantly increased SDLT liabilities for certain individuals. Our professionals can guide you through the complex landscape of surcharge payments, assisting in identifying if the surcharges apply to your property purchase. In relevant circumstances, we can help you pursue a refund of the surcharge, ensuring you optimise your SDLT position.


Non-Resident Surcharge

From April 1, 2021, non-residents purchasing residential property in the UK face a 2% or 5% SDLT rate increase, depending on the property’s status as an ‘additional dwelling.’ Navigating the intricate rules surrounding the non-resident surcharge can be bewildering, but our experts are here to assist you. We assess whether the surcharges apply to your property purchase and help you reclaim the surcharge when applicable.
