Will we be hit by new stamp duty rules for non-residents? Helen Marsh answers readers question in the FT

I live in the UK with our children who go to school here but my husband works abroad for much of the year and is classed as non-UK resident as a result. We are planning to buy a property in London for our daughter who will start university there next year, buy I am concerned we may be affected by the incoming stamp duty land tax due to my husband's position. Is this correct?
