In a transfer of equity, consideration refers to the amount of money that is paid by one person to another, to add or remove someone from the title deeds of a property. For example:

  • If you jointly own a £250,000 property with a family member, and that family member wants to buy out your 50% share for £125,000, the consideration for the transfer of equity is £125,000.

Stamp duty land tax (SDLT) for a transfer of equity is calculated according to the consideration and the amount remaining on the mortgage, not the full market value of the property.
