    If you can prove you have moved from old main residence to new main residence , you have up 3 years to claim back the 3% extra sdlt paid on new residence..

    The rules are based on the number of properties you own at the end of the transaction rather than the purpose of the property.

    There's a transitional arrangement where someone has sold their residence and not bought a new one when the rules were introduced, but I don't think that would apply here.

    Stamp Duty on main residence & a holiday let

    I am about to buy a house and bridge while I sell my exist house (yes, I know!!). They will be my main residence, so I will need to pay the 3% stamp duty surcharge and claim it back after I sell my existing house. However.... I also already own a holiday let - will this prevent me from getting a rebate?

    The capital gains is charged at 18% or 28 % rate, and this depends on your job income, which is taxed at 20% or 40% .

    Assuming the capital gains tax rate is about 25% average , your total gain is probably around 4 x £50K = £200K ( or over. )
