As you already own a dwelling anywhere else in the world you will be liable to the SDLT 3% surcharge on purchasing your Surrey residence. If you dispose of the duplicate dwelling within three years you can apply to the Stamp Office for a refund of the surcharge.
Married couples count as a single person for SDLT.
