Paragraph 18 provides the rules that determine the consideration for transactions that take place under a rent to mortgage scheme. Sub-paragraph (2) defines a “rent to mortgage scheme” as the transfer of a dwelling, or grant of a lease of a dwelling, to a person under the Housing Act 1985. This paragraph provides that for a rent to mortgage transaction, LTT is chargeable on the price that would have been payable on a purchase of a dwelling if the tenant had been paying for it all at once or the grant of a lease of the dwelling to the person.
