Frequently Asked Questions

What is a dwelling?

The property is a dwelling if all or part of it is used for residence. For instance, it could be a house or a flat. The dwelling also includes all areas belonging to the property such as gardens, driveways and other buildings within the same title. 

Certain types of residential accommodation are specifically excluded from the definition of ‘dwelling’ these are:

  • Hotels
  • Guest houses
  • Boarding school accommodation
  • Hospitals
  • Student halls
  • Military accommodation
  • Care homes
  • Prisons

Are there any ATED reliefs available?

Yes, ATED relief can be claimed if the dwelling meets the set relief conditions.

ATED Relief may be claimed if:

  • Property is used for property rental business this includes a period where the property is being sold
  • Dwelling is open to the public at least 28 days per year.
  • Property is being developed for sale
  • Property is owned by property trading business for resale
  • Property is repossessed by the financial institution
  • Property is bought under a regulated home reversion plan
  • Being used to provide living accommodation to company employees and partners
  • Used as a farmhouse and occupied by farmworker

    Are there any ATED exemptions available?

    There are a number of exemptions available from ATED but the vast majority is reserved to charities and public bodies.

    ATED exemptions are available for:

    • Registered charities where the property is used for charitable purposes
    • Some public bodies are exempt
    • Bodies that are established for national purposes

    What is current ATED valuation date? 

    If you have bought property on or before the 1st of April 2017 then you need to obtain property valuation as at the 1st of April 2017.

    However, if you purchased the property after 1st of April 2017 then valuation will be the price you’ve paid. 

    The government has set up specific valuation dates in order to minimise the valuations required. For purposes of ATED property needs to be revalued every 5 years. The next revaluation date will be in 2022/2023.

    What Our Clients Are Saying About Us

    Shaun Retzback

    From the moment we contacted Erikas Grig Chartered Surveyors they have been incredibly helpful. We needed to arrange our own valuation in order to sell our shared ownership property. Erikas contacted us straight away, advised fees (very competitive) and arranged timescales, which we agreed to. We needed two further extensions on our valuation, which were both provided quickly. Erikas and Iveta have always been extremely responsive, professional and friendly. I would absolutely recommend anybody searching for a valuation to sell their shared ownership property to use them. Thanks again for all your help.

    I highly recommend Erikas Grig's services. I hired Erikas to obtain a valuation on my Help to Buy property earlier this year and again recently, and he's been nothing but efficient and polite in carrying this out for me. I received my original valuation report very quickly after Erikas' original site visit. And he's been very accommodating in being able to conduct a further, and fairly last minute, request for an updated report to be completed. I will definitely use Erikas' services again for any future valuations.
