How To Check if You're Eligible For A Stamp Duty Refund

If you are a homeowner and have encountered issues with your property that have negatively impacted your living standards or required significant repairs, you may be eligible to reclaim Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT).

To qualify for a SDLT refund, your property must meet the following criteria:

  • The property must be a buy-to-let or second home.
  • The property must have been purchased within the last four years.
  • The property must have had qualifying defects at the time of purchase.

SDLT refunds can provide significant financial relief for homeowners who have invested in properties that turned out to have issues that negatively impacted their quality of life. If you believe that your property meets the above criteria, it is worth exploring your options for reclaiming SDLT.
