Stamp duty/ Tax
You usually pay Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) on increasing portions of the property price above £125,000 when you buy residential property, eg a house or flat.
There are different rules if you’re buying your first home and the purchase price is £500,000 or less.
Use the SDLT calculator to work out how much tax you’ll pay.
Note; If your matter requires additional work that is not included in this estimate, you will be informed of this and what the additional cost will be at the earliest possible time. Matters typically exceed the quote fee when they are particularly complicated, for example where a lease has to be extended as part of the purchase of a leasehold property.
