Hi all - I just wanted to check if the new stamp duty relief policy applies to me?
I know the basic idea is that that if you are buying your first property, you don’t have to pay stamp duty unless it’s over certain amount - basically just ‘starter homes’ - and it’s a bit more in London.
But what if you are buying your first property as a buy to let (BtL) house and you are not living there? Can I get the stamp Duty relief too? This will be the first house I have bought. I am currently renting and happy renting and will let the property.
