I was just picking up on Fuengi’s comment ,Peter ..
I know in some cases the buyer gets lumbered with this tax, but it should be for the vendor to pay.
I’m not trying to teach granny to suck eggs! 😆
I did not mean that the vendor ran off without paying.
In most cases the 3% retencion is superior to the plusvalia, so most (in my experience) pay the tax.
Its just as I have seen one or 2 agency contracts where it states the buyer pays the tax which might be what has happened to conn?
