Property Ownership/Occupation

Property ownership, be it residential or commercial, brings with it a range of problems, these issues can be resolved by seeking expert advice.
  • Is the property being held in the most efficient manner?
  • Should it be held by an individual or individuals, a company or in a partnership?
  • If I dispose of the property will I be subject to taxation, if so how much, and what can I do to improve the position?
  • Am I receiving the maximum tax relief available to me?
  • What will I do if the property is to be acquired by a statutory authority?
  • If I sell the property how can I make it more attractive to a potential purchaser?
  • Can I claim tax relief on repairs, will I be able to mitigate the amount of VAT charged, how do I maximise any reliefs available following refurbishment, extension or improvement?
We can answer these questions for you. Similar problems arise with property occupation; a tenant can claim tax relief on expenditure incurred on the landlordís property. SDLT is not a one off tax, variations to leases, rent reviews, and coming to the end of the initial period of the lease, or after five years have elapsed may all have taxable consequences.
Further information can be obtained from the Taxation, Transaction Structuring and Compulsory purchase sections above. But if you think you have a problem but are not sure which category or categories it drops into; why not ask us the question?
