we received this reply to our questioning of a retrention on the sale of our property..........

"We understand that the vendors intend to use their once in lifetime tax free sale option as outlined in our Guide to Taxes supplied to you previously. As you will have seen from the Guide, this exemption currently only applies to plots with a maximum area of 2 evleks and 2 or fewer trees. As your plot is larger than 2 evleks/has multiple trees, it is possible that some capital gains tax could be payable on the value of the land which exceeds the area of 2 evleks and the trees at the rate of 3.5%. It is impossible for us to predict how much this will be as it depends on the value attributed to the land by the Tax Office at the time of transfer. We have therefore inserted a retention of £2,500 (subject to the vendorís approval). " That now means for us that the sale of our house has cost us £8,500...............

It does state this tax in the taxes payable on Naomi Mehmet's website so this is nothing new but it may well catch others out in the future. - http://www.nmplegal.com/pdf/GUIDE%20TO%20TAXES%20FOR%20PROPERTY%20TRANSACTIONS.pdf
