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 stamp duty will I pay?

From 8th July 2020, if your property costs more than £500,000 then you will have to pay SDLT, and if you're a first-time buyer you won't have to pay any SDLT on a property up to £500,000. The amount 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.


What is the stamp duty holiday?

The stamp duty holiday was announced July 2020 in an attempt to stimulate the property market following a fall in activity during the first Covid-19 lockdown. It means no stamp duty is charged on a residential property under the value of £500,000. Before the holiday, tax would be payable for any property over the value of £125,000 – the amount being dependant on the value of the property. This holiday has recently been extended until the end of June 2021.
