Stamp Duty Land Tax & Problems with HMRC

The Financial Times (19/4/2013) reports that a large number of homeowners have been informed of large discrepancies between the amount of Stamp duty which they have paid and the purchase price of their property, by HMRC.

It would appear that largely as a result of the negligence of their solicitors a lower purchase price was inserted in the paperwork and this has come to the attention of HMRC who are demanding that the homeowner pays the amount now owing. This despite the fact that it was the fault of the solicitors concerned. It is vitally important that the purchaser themselves checks the SDLT figures, because ultimately it is the responsibility of the purchaser.
If you are purchasing a property ensure that the solicitors that you instruct are fully qualified, experienced and reputable such as our property team at LEWIS NEDAS LAW.

CONTACT Richard McConnell; Janak Bakrania or Layna Thompson.
If you are one of these homeowners now facing a large unexpected demand from HMRC, you will need advice when dealing with HMRC (contact Jeffrey Lewis or Siobhain Egan) and with the SRA /Solicitors Indemnity fund when making a claim against the solicitors involved contact Jasbir Kaur.

Construction Dispute Success

Jasbir Kaur was recently instructed to advise a well established company, who is the main contractor for large scale design & build construction projects. The company are currently building a million pound warehouse facility for an international, leading maker of cancer treatment & medical equipment.

After a dispute having arisen with a sub-contractor, which caused severe delay to the completion of works & consequential losses, our client wished to immediately terminate their agreement with this particular sub-contractor without any cost consequence or damage to their prestigious reputation.

Following the instruction of Miss Kaur of LNL to advise our client and facilitate negotiation between both parties, a mutual agreement was reached after two weeks of mediation, wherein the sub-contractor conceded to both parties terminating their agreement on a "drop hand," basis with no consequences as to liability and costs for our client.

Our client is naturally happy and relieved at this outcome as they are now able to continue with this prestigious £1.5 million pound project.

We at LNL are able to assist clients whom wish to utilise various means of alternative dispute resolution during any stage of a dispute.
