    Selling and moving residential property but have a buy to let 3% stamp duty?

    Hi. I'm struggling to understand the rules regarding the additional 3% stamp duty on a second home. I own a buy to rent house. I own and live in my residential property. I want to sell my current residential property and move into a new residential property. Because I own a buy to let do I need to pay the extra 3% stamp duty?

    Yes, but you can reclaim it.
    When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
    Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

      No.

      If you’re replacing your main residence

      You will not pay the extra 3% SDLT if the property you’re buying is replacing your main residence and that has already been sold.

        Thanks. That makes sense.

        • Capital Gain Tax on main home, but let in the past
          by Gep
          Hi all,
          I'm thinking about selling my flat and trying to workout how much capital gain tax I would have to pay.
          ​​Accordingly to the HMRC website the rate is 28% if you let the property out, but I'm currently living there so I'm not sure.

          I've owned the property for 10 years:...

          The first question you should ask yourself is why have I chosen this investment over other forms of investment, including those that would be tax free or designed for pensions?

          And if you don't have an answer, you've not really made a decision.

          As there is no mortgage you can make a useful income from it but it certainly isn't hassle free. If you do it yourself it's vital you know what you're doing so you need some landlord training. You are never off duty. If you use an agent you need to make sure they know what they're doing. Anyone can...

          At the cost of being chastised. ( and not directing my comments to 1600e, but a general statement. )

          Landlords "Let"
          And tenants "Rent"./ rent it.

          Before you think of renting it, get an EPC (energy performance certificate) and an eicr (electrical installation condition report) carried out and gsc (gas safety certificate). If it's a modernish house you should be ok as regards the EPC but if not bear in mind the government is aiming to get all private...
