Rent to shared ownership lease: charge to tax

352.Paragraph 8 sets out how to determine the chargeable consideration for transactions involving “rent to shared ownership lease” schemes. A “rent to shared ownership lease scheme” is defined at sub-paragraph (2) as one in which a qualifying body grants an occupation contract to a tenant(s) and subsequently grants a shared ownership lease of the dwelling to one or more of them. Sub-paragraph (3) provides that transactions in connection with the scheme are not treated as linked to each other. Sub-paragraph (4) provides that the tenant’s possession of the dwelling under an occupation contract is disregarded in determining the effective date of the grant of the shared ownership lease. Sub-paragraph (5) defines occupation contract in accordance with the meaning attributed to it in Part 2 of the Renting Homes (Wales) Act 2016.
