Who can apply for SDLT refunds?

In general, anyone who is involved in a property transaction in the United Kingdom may need to pay Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT). The specific individuals who may need to apply for SDLT depend on their role in the transaction. Here are some common parties involved in property transactions who may need to apply for SDLT:

Property Buyer:

The buyer of a property is typically responsible for paying SDLT. They are the ones who generally apply for SDLT and make the payment to the relevant tax authority.

Property Seller:

Although the primary responsibility for SDLT lies with the buyer, in some cases, the seller may be required to provide information or complete certain forms related to SDLT.

Conveyancer / Solicitor:

The buyer or seller may engage a conveyancer or solicitor to handle the legal aspects of the property transaction. Conveyancers or solicitors often assist in completing the necessary SDLT forms and submitting them on behalf of their clients.

Estate / Property Agents:

Estate agents or property agents who are involved in the transaction may also have a role in assisting with SDLT matters. They may provide guidance or information but generally do not apply for SDLT on behalf of the buyer.

It’s important to note that the specific roles and responsibilities may vary based on the circumstances of the property transaction and the jurisdiction within the United Kingdom. It’s advisable to consult with a conveyancer, solicitor, or tax professional for accurate guidance regarding SDLT and the application process specific to your situation.
