The answer affects the amount of stamp duty land tax (SDLT) payable. There are potentially three alternative answers:
there is one transaction (V1 and V2 sell the whole property comprising two titles to P)
there are two transactions (V1 and V2 sell one title to P, and V1 sells the other title to P), or
there are three transactions (V1 sells an undivided share of one title to P, V2 sells an undivided share of the same title to P, and V1 sells the other title to P)
To complicate things further, in the case of the second and third alternatives the transactions may be ‘linked’ depending on whether V1 and V2 are connected for tax purposes: see section 108 of the Finance Act 2003 (FA 2003).
