    Completing Stamp Duty form

    I have received the SDLT1 Land Transaction Return and am having trouble with one particular part.
    I am purchasing an existing lease dated 1 October 2006 which commenced on 1 August 2004 for 999 years.
    Ground rent of £150 per year is payable on 1 August every year and the rent is reviewed every 10 years throughout the term. The first rent review in 2014 has resulted in the rent staying at £150 per year.

    As I am buying an existing lease I have to answer question 20 (ABOUT LEASES) which is where I come unstuck. I can answer the preceding questions in the section "About Leases" but the difficulty is in part of Q 20 which asks for "THE END DATE FOR STARTING RENT" followed by LATER RENT KNOWN (YES OR NO). What date do I put in for the End Date? Is it the 10th anniversary or is it the end of the lease? I just don't get it!

    As for is "Later Rent Known" I presume I insert "NO" as the rent may change on the next review?

    If the SDLT is paid to HMRC , you should be asking that Authority. Most buyer would istruct a conveyancing solicitor to sort this out

      Hi, new here, sorry if this has been asked already but I can't find the answer.

      I have just completed my tax return for 2020/21 as a landlord with a few properties. My income was 22k and my outgoings (maintainance, ground rent, insurance, mortgage payments etc) was 18k. The mortgages are...

      I suspect that you completed the return incorrectly.

      Yes (if you are spouses)
      Probably wise to use a lawyer
      CGT not relevant as you can freely transfer between spouses for CGT purposes (even shortly before a sale)...

      New to this, buy to let property got in 2018 but renewing took time and COVID hit. Rented out since Dec 2020. I had Electrical work done completed in 2019, as had no income I had not filled in self assessment. Can I claim it in this tax year?

      If it was first let in December 2020, the costs allowable against income prior to that take place on the first day of the first tenancy for tax purposes.

      So, if you mean can you claim it on a tax return for April 2020 to April 2021, the answer is yes.
      You can't claim it for this tax...

      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...

      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 James, 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.
