Stamp duty rates are only applied to the relevant portion of the property purchase value. For instance, a property purchase at £300,000 would result in stamp duty of £5,000 calculated as: £0 on the first £125,000, £2,500 on the next £125,000 (2% * £125,000) and £2,500 on the next £50,000 (5% * £50,000).

Rules applicable for first time buyers or additional property purchasers

  • A SDLT surcharge is applicable when purchasing a second property or buy-to-let property, there is an additional 3.0% on acquisitions over £40,000. See our SDLT calculator for buy-to-let and additional property purchases.
  • First time buyers pay no stamp duty if the property they are purchasing has a value of less than £300,000 (outside of London) or £500,000 (in London). If the property being purchased is above this value, then stamp duty is paid as normal.
