SDLT - My clients, a father, son & daughter in law have

This answer was rated:

SDLT - My clients, a father, son & daughter in law have transferred 3 Buy to Let residential properties into a Ltd Co which gives rise to SDLT. The 3 properties were owned
A) Father
b) Son
C) Son & daughter in law
Can I claim a "linked transaction" and thus averaging under Multiple Dwellings Relief?
The guide states it is available if bought from the same vendor at the same time. Which would appear to preclude this , or does it?


Thanks for your question

No as they were owned independently from different people so cannot be made as one transaction purchased and are linked through family ties rather than the transaction itself being linked and do not forget if these are not private and main residences then capital gains is also due

Let me know if I can assist further

Thanks , CGT isn't a problem in this case.

Your reply is in line with what I assumed but their solicitor has advised them that relief is available


Thanks for your response

There is such a relief but would not apply for this particular transaction

Do let me know if I can assist further and thank you for the rating - much appreciated
