When you're buying a home - whether it's for the first time or the tenth, it's most unlikely that anyone spends much time talking to you about Stamp Duty
Great experience, Cornerstone dealt with my request swiftly. Staff are friendly and responsive. The whole process was very efficient due to the use of online systems for document signing and fee payments. Thank you all for your help.
An excellent experience from a very busy company. Advice was concise and understandable in a difficult subject. In fact a minefield. Thanks for all your help and hopefully all your clients can have the same level of service.
I am very thankful to Cornerstone Tax Advisers, especially Aamirah Tayob for assisting me with my SDLT refund. Throughout the process Aamirah guided me and has been very helpful, supportive and prompt in her replies. I would definitely recommend Cornerstone for their transparent and professional services. Thank you Aamirah and the entire team for all your support and cooperation.
We sought help from Cornerstone Tax for an SDLT relief - Multiple Dwelling Relief. It is a matter several mortgage advisors and solicitors claimed they had little idea. However, Mr Mehmod Anvarmia from Cornerstone helped us with the matter. Right from the first conversation, he gave us enormous confidence about our case, kept us dutifully informed all through the process, and ensured we successfully claimed the relief sooner and better than we had expected. World-class service by Mehmod and Cornerstone. Thanks again!!
Mehmod at Cornerstone was extremely helpful and patient and knowledgeable, going over things a number of times on the telephone, before providing expert advice in a written document, which has proved invaluable. We would definitely use Cornerstone again in the future, and Mehmod in particular, as he went above and beyond in providing us with tax advice.
I am very grateful to Sam Child for his help. All was done in no time with a brilliant attitude to the client. Cannot praise and recommend him enough.
I've dealt with Mehmod on a couple of occasions now, the second one being around queries on inheritance tax. He was very knowledgeable and highlighted the key things I needed to be aware of. He was always happy to explain in more detail anything I needed clarification on and responded promptly. I would highly recommend Cornerstone and Mehmod's services.
Absolutely Fantastic in getting my stamp duty overpayment refunded. Maria Shek from Cornerstone is an absolute joy to deal with and has helped me with invaluable advice regarding my refund claim for this and other properties where I have overpaid stamp duty. I cannot recommend them enough. No nonsense just straightforward honest advice!
Aamirah Tayob dealed with my query on stamp duty. She was incredibly helpful and gave me invaluable advise. Very approachable, even after me sending far too many emails with queries!! Always quick to return my calls and messages. Would highly recommend.
I have worked with Sam at Cornerstone to file several successful SDLT refunds. They mandate collection of a strict set of documentation with certain unmovable conditions, which can be laborious and sometimes difficult to secure, but they seem to have secret sauce of expertise in this niche area none of the other advisors I enquired possess. In short, they currently have cornered the market thus charge a high commission fee but it’s still a sizable win for their clients.
Whenever I have a stamp duty query I always call Cornerstone. It’s rarely straightforward and 9/10 times they are able to save me money.
I dealt with Maria Shek, she was amazing from beginning to end and managed to get me a fantastic result, I am very happy and highly recommend.
Sam explored my possible SDLT overpayment and followed up efficiently and effectively. Whilst I was unable to make a claim due to an HMRC time limits he offered alternative recovery options. He was profession and courteous throughout and I would recommend.
I would like to give another 5 stars to Cornerstone! My SDLT claim was processed seamlessly within 2 months and money was back to my account within a week after their confirmation. Big thanks to Mehmod and the team!
I dealt with Mehmod who helped me on an SDLT query. Very quick and professional response with good communication. Excellent work, I would recommend Cornerstone.
I only contacted Cornerstone after I had bought a mixed use property. They reacted swiftly, requested information and processed it at speed. The SDLT return was submitted within the 14 days at a level of only just over 50% of that which my solicitor, who had recommended taking specialist advice, was intending to submit absent such advice. The service was friendly and efficient.
I contacted Cornerstone for advise after reading an article they had written regarding how often SDLT overpayments occur. They confirmed I had paid too much and gave me instructions on how I could get this redressed. Outcome… SDLT overpayment returned. Thanks.
We approached Nita Patel for some advice about our individual circumstances regarding purchase of a new property. Nita was very prompt in all her responses. She was patient when we asked many questions and re-explained her advice in a way that was easy to understand. 100% recommend her services!
