This will be subject to a minimum rate of one per cent. The rule change is expected to encourage professional landlords and institutional investors to build up their property portfolios.STAMP DUTY LAND TAX AVOIDANCE CLAMPDOWNCurrently payable at five per cent on properties over £5m. Osborne has from today banned three schemes commonly used to avoid paying the tax. Two of them involved setting up financial institutions through which a property was bought such as an offshore registered company, incurring a much lower rate of stamp duty or no duty at all. While the third relied on taking out long-term leases of up to 999 years instead of buying a property outright.
