Was wondering if someone can advise. We owned a house for 5 years then moved out and rented it for 18 months and continuing (while ourselves renting as well). Now want to buy a house (which will be second house so higher rate stamp duty). If I sell my old rented house next year can I reclaim the higher rate stamp duty which I paid?
I know it is within three years but is it three years from the time you stopped living in your earlier main home or three years from buying a new property and selling old one?
Appreciate any help.
