    I doubt HMG will want to pass the baton on in such a spectacular fashion... or maybe Crash Gordon wants to pass on a poison chalice?

      Hello everyone,
      I have had an offer accepted on a property purchase, subject to a surveyors report of £395,000 in England.

      I am currently looking at surveyors but i just wanted to know where i stand in terms of stamp duty, costs etc.

      I have phoned 5 different solicitors

      Well after emailing and chatting to around 20 solicitors and accountants i finally found someone who specializes in these matters.

      Took a lot of time and effort but instead of over £21,000+ its actually £9,250 which is a saving of £12k, phew just shows you that many solicitors have little...

      Elderly parents in early 80s, one in not so good health.

      Lived in the same home (no mortgage etc) for 50+ years - now worth approx £180,000 - £200,000 and they have minimal savings.

      Looking ahead, if one has to go into care (or council provided home care) I understand there...

      Did the labouring job jeopardise his position at Royal Mail? lt is strange no contingency fund was taken on holiday.. I don't think it makes sense to purchase, and insure/maintain a camper van to save on 7 days accommodation.The typical cost including depreciation exceeds £1500 pa...

      Hi my partner and I are looking to sell one of our rentals and our residential property and buy a larger property.

      I'm confused whether we will be charged the higher rate land transaction tax due to owning a third property that we own that will not be sold as of yet. It was our previous...

      What you record for your own purposes is up to you, but for purposes of tax return, for just one property, and rent < 80K, can just pop it all into "Other expenses" - so long as you can resurrect it when HMRC audits you.
