Stamp duty information when buying property

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) must be paid if you are buying land or a property over  a fixed amount.  

You must pay this tax when you buy a freehold property, a new or existing leasehold, a property through a shared ownership scheme or are transferred land or property in exchange for payment (for example you take on a mortgage or buy a share in a house).

The cost of stamp duty varies depending on the price of your chosen property and your reason for buying it. You can use our calculator to work out the stamp duty on your chosen property.

Following on from the Stamp Duty holiday, from 1st October 2021 tax will be payable for any property over the value of £125,000.
