What is Stamp Duty?

Known by its full name of Stamp Duty Land Tax, Stamp Duty is a tax paid to the government for any land or property related transactions so if you are purchasing a property, you'll need to remember to calculate any payments that you'll need to make on top of the value of the property.

*If the property value is equal to or less than £40,000 you will not pay SDLT

Example: If you buy a house for £275,000, the Buy to let Stamp Duty Rate you owe is calculated as follows:

  • 3% on the first £125,000 = £3,750
  • 5% on the next £125,000 = £6,250
  • 8% on the final £25,000 = £2,000
  • Total SDLT = £12,000


Stamp Duty does not apply to you if you are selling your home, but it may be worth taking it into consideration on behalf of your potential buyers. 

If your property is valued at £250,000 your buyer would need to find an extra £10,000 on top of the purchase price to cover the buy to let stamp duty tax.
