Stamp Duty & Land Tax

Stamp Duty Land Tax  is a tax on properties payable on all residential properties over £125,000, and non-residential land and properties over £150,000 in England and Northern Ireland.

Your conveyancer will submit the Stamp Duty Land Tax return on completion of your purchase and will pay the tax due to HMRC on your behalf. Only those buying a property pay Stamp Duty Land Tax.

Stamp Duty Land Tax rates are dependent on the price of the property purchased and are organised into categories. There are different rates if you are buying a second home or a buy-to-let property and in most cases, first time buyers are exempt from paying Stamp Duty Land Tax.
