Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
Hello, I am one of the experts on Just Answer and pleased to be able to help you with your quastion.
You may fall foul of the following rule in respect this exemption [source: Gov UK Web Site]:
'The relief applies from 22 November 2017 to purchases of residential property for £500,000 or less, provided the purchaser intends to occupy the property as their only or main residence.'
As you will indeed be occupying in accordance with the rule then this exception should not apply to you.
I do hope that you have found my reply of assistance.
No, Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) does not extend outside the UK. A nasty little tax it may be, but not that nasty!
Please be so kind as to rate me before you leave the Just Answer site.
Thank you for your support.
Delighted to have been of assistance.
