Derelict Land

Question for HM Treasury

UIN 218017, tabled on 10 December 2014

To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, what estimate he has made of the annual cost to the Exchequer of exempting houses on brownfield sites from stamp duty land tax on their first sale.

Answered on

No such estimate has been made.

HMRC data does not contain any information on brownfield sites. Furthermore it does not contain information on if a transaction is the first sale of a developed site.
