Stamp Duty Land Tax

Are you looking to buy a property or land in the United Kingdom? then you have to pay Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT)!

This is charged on all purchases of houses, flats and other land and buildings.

The SDLT rate depends on:

  • The purchase price of the property
  • Whether the property is residential
  • Whether the property is in a disadvantaged area

Stamp Duty Land Tax is normally paid directly to your solicitor with your funds for the purchase of the property.

The Stamp Duty Land Tax rates on residential land or property are as follows :

Purchase Price of Property

Rate of SDLT (% of total purchase price)

 £0 - £125,000




 £125,001 - £250,000




 £250,001 - £925,000




 £925,000 - £1.5 Million




 Over £1.5 Million





So if you buy a house for £275,000 you will pay £3,750 in Stamp Duty Land Tax on top of the purchase price.

This is calculated as follows:

0% on the first £125,000 = £0

2% on the next £125,000 = £2,500

5% on the final £25,000 = £1,250

Total Stamp Duty Land Tax payable = £3,750
