What is stamp duty?
Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) is a tax on properties bought in England and Northern Ireland. The rate of stamp duty you'll pay will depend on where in the UK you decide to buy the property. England and Northern Ireland share the same rates, whilst Scotland and Wales differ. The cost of stamp duty will vary depending on the price of your chosen property and your reason for buying it.
How much is stamp duty?
From 23rd September 2022, no stamp duty is charged on properties under £250,000. The amount of stamp duty you pay does depend on the value of your property as it is worked out on a percentage of your purchase price. It is important to consider SDLT when thinking about buying a house as in some cases it could be a considerable amount.
First-time buyers will only pay SDLT on homes over £425,000, up from £300,000. First-time buyers' relief is available on properties up to £625,000, up from £500,000.
If buying a new residential property means you'll own more than one, you'll usually have to pay 3% on top of the standard SDLT rates.
