Stamp Duty FAQ.
In 2019, a First Tier Tribunal heard a case known as ‘The Bewley Case’ (P N Bewley Ltd v HMRC  TC6951) that set a further legal precedence for reducing high rates of Stamp Duty. Bewley successfully argued that, since his property suffered from substantial defects at the time of purchase, he should have been charged the non-residential rate of stamp duty, rather than the higher residential rate.
The Tribunal ruled that where a residential property was not suitable for use as a dwelling, the lower non-residential rate of stamp duty should have been applied. We can advance claims based on the following (non-exhaustive list of) defects:
- Defective Heating System
- Unsafe Electrics
- Structural Issue
- Non-operational Bathroom or Kitchen
- Severe Roof Leaks
If you purchased a residential property which suffered from any of the above, or similar defects, you might be eligible for a stamp duty rebate.
Yes there is. To reclaim an overpayment from HMRC the deadline is usually 12 months and 14 days from when you paid the stamp duty. In extremely limited circumstances that deadline can be extended up to 4 years and 14 days. If you are too late to claim the repayment from HMRC (which is usually a quicker and more certain process) you can bring a court claim against a professional advisor if their advice or work was negligent and it caused you to overpay.
