Legal Q&A: how do the new stamp duty rules work?

We are buying a new house and wish to gift our family home to our children. I believe our family residence will be exempt from capital gains tax but will stamp duty be payable on both properties and will we have to pay the higher rate on our new property? 

Legal Q&A: Should we sell our garden to a builder?

Our neighbours’ son contacted us saying they want to buy part of our large garden. He is a builder so it is possible he may want to build a new house on the land rather than simply extending the size of his parents’ garden. If we sell, will this affect our mortgage and can we restrict how they use the land?
