    How do you calculate SDLT when there are linked transactions involving both freehold and leasehold interests?
    For example consider the transfer of non-residential properties:
    Freehold value – ?100,000
    Leasehold value (NBV of rent) – ?80,000
    The combined value is ?180,000. Using the rules for freehold would give SDLT at 1% on the whole ?180,000, but the leasehold rules only charge 1% on the excess over ?150,000. How do they interact?

    No account is taken of the rent when calculating the consideration for the freehold – see para 9(5) Schedule 5 FA 2003. However, the 0% band is not available for the freehold consideration – see para 9(2A).
