SDLT - Private Individuals

Specialist SDLT Advice For Private Individuals

SDLT is complex, if it is not dealt with correctly it could cost you £1000's.

Our specialist team will provide you with written SDLT advice specific to your case, to help you understand your SDLT liability and potential ways to mitigate your exposure. We can also provide second opinions, if you have concerns that you have paid too much SDLT.

We can assist with:

  • Determining your SDLT liability and whether the 3% surcharge will be applied
  • Identifying any potential ways to reduce your exposure to the charge
  • Advice in relation to claiming specific reliefs (including Multiple Dwellings Relief)
  • Advising on payment of SDLT and negotiating with HMRC
  • Provision of a second opinion and assistance with HMRC reclaims
  • Dealing with HMRC enquiries
As a leader in the SDLT field, let us take care of your SDLT queries – allowing you to focus on the more important things in life.


The cost for our specialist SDLT written reports start at £200 + VAT, which covers query discovery and internal administration costs. The initial review and fee quote is provided free of charge.

Are you due a refund?

  • Have you paid the 3% surcharge on the purchase of your main residence but have now sold your old main residence?
  • Have you purchased a property within the last four years that has an annexe or self-contained outbuilding?

If you think you have paid too much SDLT, we can provide a second opinion and assist with a reclaim from HMRC. You have four years from the date of purchase to make a claim for overpaid SDLT.


I contacted Moore via the website for help to understand the SDLT rules set by HMRC and to be clear what we needed to do. I found the service quick, efficient and - more importantly for me - I dealt with someone who explained in easy simple terms clear factual information and provided a detailed report for our solicitor. I would not hesitate to use them again.
