When is stamp duty paid?
When buying a property over a certain price, stamp duty is payable to the HMRC 14 days from the date of completion or you may risk a fine. Your solicitor or legal adviser should take care of this for you and ensure you don't miss the deadline. Some buyers prefer to add on the stamp duty tax amount to their mortgage loan. Please speak to your mortgage provider.

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) is a progressive tax paid when purchasing a freehold, leasehold or shared ownership residential property over £250,000 in England and Northern Ireland (separate taxes apply in Wales and Scotland).

Different SDLT rates and thresholds apply to non-residential property or mixed use land. The rates, which are payable only on the PORTION of a property price that falls within each band, were updated in the mini-Budget on 23 September 2022 and are set out below.

How much stamp duty will I have to pay when buying a residential property?

Brackets Rate
Up to £250,000 0%
The next £675,000 (the portion from £250,001 to £925,000) 5%
The next £575,000 (the portion from £925,001 to £1.5 million 10%
The remaining amount (the portion above £1.5 million) 12%

How to calculate the new stamp duty rate

Property purchase price: £850,000.
There is no stamp duty Tax applied to the first £250,000
5% above £250,000
That equates to an overall rate of 3.5% of the sale price, or £30,000.
The rates are different for first-time buyers
First-time buyers will not pay any stamp duty on the first £425,000 (up from £300,000 following the mini-Budget) and the value of any property on which they can claim this relief has risen to £625,000 from £500,000.

Buy-to-let and second homes stamp duty
From April 2016, buy-to-let and second home buyers in England and Wales will have to pay an additional 3% on each stamp duty band.
