In a recent purchase of a high value property it was noted that the property would qualify for Multiple Dwellings Relief in respect of Stamp Duty Land Tax. The clients were unaware of this and ended up saving over £50,000.

Recent case: Complex leasehold property sale … Read more

Sale of Leasehold Property where the Lease needed to be varied to accurately delineate the extent of the demised property. The freehold title also needed to be rectified to accurately delineate the extent of a flying freehold. This matter also included dealing with the absence of a right of way on the registered title although pre-registration deeds indicated that a right of way should have been registered. The title was rectified accordingly and the sale was successfully completed.

Recent case: Transfer of equity … Read more

Transfer of equity of a property which needed to be completed before the end of the client’s tax year. Despite the very tight time limit the matter was completed in time.
