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.

If your property costs more than £125,000 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 £300,000. 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.
