    Stamp duty question for joint ownership?

    Hi,

    I am intending to buy a residential property with a joint mortgage with my partner to live in. I previously owned a residential property which I sold in March 2016 and currently I own a btl property which is rented.
    My partner is a first time buyer and I am not, at present I do not own a residential property and I am wondering if on a purchase price of £400,000 the stamp duty will be £10,000 or £22,000?

    I really appreciate if someone could please clarify that.

    Many Thanks

    Z

    £22,000

    The flowchart in the picture explains why (except that 18 months is now 36 months)

      According with the pic I shouldn't pay the high rate because at the end of the day of the transaction I will own 2 properties, but the second property bought together with my partner replace my main residence (which has been sold 2 months ago). So we should pay £10k correct?

        If you still own the BTL, then you will own 2 properties.

          I have just called hmrc and they told me that having sold my residential property last month I have now 35 months left to buy a new main residential property paying the basic stamp duty rate even if I own other BTL properties.
          Can anyone confirm this?

            Which department did you telephone at HMRC and do you have the phone number?

              Hello

              I am considering whether to sell my house which has been let for some time and need to see how I can best deal with CGT.

              I lived in the property from 1984 until 2006.

              From 2006 it has been occupied by tenants, now vacant and being renovated.

              You should seek advice from an accountant, or a property tax for tailored advice to your specific circumstances, you may be entitled to some relief if the property at any time was your own principal residence.

              You declare (online) and pay CGT within 60 days of sale. Depending on the numbers I would expect you to pay CGT. What records do you have of applicable costs, etc?

              What you pay will depend on what CGT rules when you sell - v unlikely to be better than today, possibly worse. Covid,...

              The property allowance is a tax exemption of up to £1,000 a year for individuals with income from land or property.

              If you own a property jointly with others, you’re each eligible for the £1,000 allowance against your share of the gross rental income.

              If your annual gross...

              Can anyone help please, if a rental property is owned by two people 50 50. Would each owner be allowed to claim tax relief of £1000 each, or will the allowance of £1000 be split 50 50.
              Thanks

              It's £1,000 each.

              Most landlords don't use this though, because it's rare for income from a rental property to be low enough to qualify,
