Stamp Duty

What is Stamp Duty?

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) is a tax paid by the buyer of a UK residential property when the purchase price exceeds £125,000. The stamp duty rate ranges from 2% to 12% of the purchase price, depending upon the value of the property, the purchase date and whether you are a multiple home owner.

Anyone purchasing an ‘additional’ residential property will be charged a 3% surcharge on each of the threshold bands.

If you are buying your first home and the purchase price is over £500,000, you cannot claim the relief.

If you are a landlord, buying to let, you will have to pay SDLT if the income from a short term property let (up to seven years), residential tenancy or lease is above the threshold.

If you’re not present in the UK for at least 183 days (6 months) during the 12 months before your purchase you are ‘not a UK resident’ for the purposes of SDLT you’ll usually pay a 2% surcharge if you’re buying a residential property in England or Northern Ireland on or after 1 April 2021.
