Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT)

What is Stamp Duty?

'Stamp Duty Land Tax' is a tax due when buying property and land in the UK.

How do I pay Stamp Duty?

Typically your Solicitor will assist you with Stamp Duty payments.

How is Stamp Duty calculated?

Since 4th December 2014, you will only pay the rate of tax on the part of the property price within each tax band. (This is similar to how income tax is calculated)

First time buyers or standard residential

If you purchase a residential property between 8 July 2020 to 31 March 2021, you only start to pay SDLT (Stamp Duty Land Tax) on the amount that you pay for the property above £500,000.

These rates apply whether you are buying your first home or have owned property before

Stamp Duty for non-UK residents will include an additional 2% for purchases of residential property from 1 April 2021. This is in addition to the bands described below.
