    Hmo - Multiple Dwelling For Sdlt?

    Hi
    I would like to know would an HMO (4 unrelated students sharing 4bedrooms kitchen and dinner) be considered multiple dwelling for Sdlt relief.

    No, I do not believe so.

      The chance of 4 students sharing dinner is remote. They all come in and out at such funny times.

          A call out to anyone. Im trying to find something on this on the www but havent found a dickie bird as of yet. Im sure someone has come across this. Is an HMO considered/not considered multiple dwellings for Sdlt multiple dwellings relief.

            If you want to know exactly, try Finance Act 2003 s116(2)(b), which pulls student residential accommodation as a 'dwelling' and within Finance Act 2003 s116(1)(a).

            Thus, I believe, for SDLT purposes the HMO is considered a single dwelling and cannot be 'carved up' to lower the transaction values.

              I started my limited company a year before buying the first property, then bought a second 2 months later, a third 3 months after that, a fourth 5 months after that and so on to where I am now. Our lenders have never said they want a separate company per property. Ive never heard of that, if it were...

              Hi,

              I currently have a property rented out in my own name with a fair bit of equity around 50% LTV this is actually a repayment mortgage which i'm looking to switchover to a interest only. When i do this i'm also taking money out of the property to put towards another which i'm looking...

              I don't think we disagree.

              The OP has one property and is looking to buy a second.
              At that point in that business, lenders will want a company per property.

              There's a point where that ceases to be the case, when the portfolio gets big enough, or, presumably when someone...

              i concur with this, once you get over 4 properties, they consider you to be a portfolio landlord and want to start seeing cashflow forecasts before lending to make sure the company is buoyant. Directors guarantees each time but no limits on number of properties or number of dofferent lenders....

              This is not true in my experience. I currently have eight properties in the same company, across a number of different mainstream BTL lenders, and none of them have batted an eyelid at the number.

              Where I have known lenders worry about the company is it doesn't have the correct SIC code...

              Depends to a great degree on tax regulations over the coming years. We only know what the rules are today, not what they'll be in future e.g. when you retire

              I expect chancellors to cut back on the advantages of people owning property through companies (well, wouldn't you if you were chancellor)...

              1. No. You have not sold the property yet

              2. 19% on profit by company.

              3. Seek advice from accountant.

              I watched a webinar from Landlord studio and this man Tony Gimple was featured in it. Have a look at his Linkedin profile:

              He has a website whereby he consults exactly to your situation:
