Application of this ScheduleE+W

2(1)This Schedule applies where—E+W

(a)a person (““the original buyer””) enters into a contract (““the original contract””) for the acquisition by the original buyer of a chargeable interest under which the acquisition is to be completed by a transfer, and

(b)there is a pre-completion transaction.

(2)The reference in sub-paragraph (1)(a) to a contract does not include a contract that is an assignment of rights in relation to another contract.

(3)For any one contract for the acquisition of a chargeable interest there is only one original buyer (and for the purposes of this Schedule joint original buyers are to be treated as one original buyer).

(4)This Schedule does not apply where paragraph 21 of Schedule 6 (assignment of agreement for lease) applies (and accordingly, despite paragraph 3, the assignment of an agreement for lease is not a pre-completion transaction).

(2)A transaction that gives effect to a person's acquisition of the whole or part of the subject-matter of the original contract is not a pre-completion transaction.

(3)The grant or assignment of an option is not a pre-completion transaction.
