    3% SDLT Effect on the Rental Market

    I am currently completing my master degree at UCL ,writing my dissertation about the effect of the 3% stamp duty on the rental market. In order to prove my hypothesis I need to interview landlords and renters and analyse their behaviour regarding the news. It would be a great opportunity for me if you could participate in this research. The interviews will be confidential and professionally handled following all ethical consent off course.

    Send me an email on : yasminebaker@hotmail.com to let me know what you think.
    I am looking forward for our chats to be of mutual benefit to both of us.
    Thank you

    Stamp duty was replaced by SDLT a few years ago. SDLT is a tax imposed by HMRC on the buyers of property for own residence or investment. The extra 3% charged is a whim of the chancellor to discourage BTL landlords.

    The rental market in any location depends on the demand by persons wanting to rent a place to live in that area ( for work or higher education) and the supply of accommodation available to meet the demand. .

I have managed to find through other directors the meetings minutes for the past 9 years, however I am struggling to be given the full accounts. When I ask, I am told I...

    • Moving Back Into Let House
      by Sentaiwarrior

      I was wondering if anyone can provide me with advice.

      I used to live in my own house. I moved for work a few years ago and let my house (with consent to let).

      I'm planning to move back into my house which is currently still let. I've given the tenant three...

      No you can't do that. If the tenant actually broke stuff and you sort it before the tenancy ends, then maybe. At the start of putting a property out to rent you can make tax related expense claims - you can't have a double bite, fixing it for yourself at the other end....

      The wear and tear allowance has been removed so you could expense the actual costs of the items as an expense, on a like for like basis, only if you are then renting it out, if it is returning back to a residential property then you couldn't.

      Hi Folks,

      Looking for some general advice. I own 5 BTL properties individually and have 3 BTL properties as a LTD Company. My tax returns are relatively straight forward and I was thinking to do my own tax returns this year. My account charged me GBP1500 for the return for my Ltd Company,...

      I think its better for Ltd companies to have their annual accounts done by chartered accountant. Very difficult to get any bank loan without showing certified accounts.
