  1. We have two existing rental properties in our names, 200k each, both with fixed mortgages due for renewal. They are a long term investment for our retirement. We are seeking to increase our portfolio to three or four properties in the next five years. If we sold these properties to two separate limited companies during the stamp duty holiday, would the companies incur stamp duty? Thanks in advance.
  2. Hi My wife and I are looking to convert the house we live in and own to a rental property (our first one) and move into somewhere bigger as we are starting a family.

If we buy the house with a joint mortgage secured on our joint incomes including the rental income from my flat will we have to pay the higher rate stamp duty of 3% if we are not married ?

  5. hello YBS has proposed changing the liability for payment of stamp duty from the buyer to the seller. Will this make a difference and enable more first time buyers (FTB) onto the ladder? I'm sceptical (by nature) and think that this may simply lead to higher purchase prices as FTBs will have more cash to spend.
