    Does a disabled person’s settlement qualify as a life interest trust for the purposes of SDLT where the trust purchases a property for the disabled person to occupy?
    If so, and the property costs less than £300,000, does it follow that if the beneficiary of the trust is a first time buyer, no SDLT will be payable under the new rules for first time buyers?

    William, the relief applies to purchasers who are individuals and there is no provision that deems purchasers who are the trustees of a settlement to be the beneficiary for the purposes of the relief. The position would be different in the case of a bare trust.
