Please note: this was recorded prior to the Spring Budget on 06 March 2024. The team briefly touch on Multiple Dwellings Relief (MDR), however, the Chancellor announced that this will be abolished on 1 June 2024. Please bear this in mind when listening to the episode.

Additionally, we discuss SDLT (which is applicable in England and Northern Ireland), however for those in Scotland or Wales separate devolved equivalents are applicable and would need to be considered.
