2017 Stamp Duty Rates

Buyers pay Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) if you buy a property or land over a certain price in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

The current SDLT threshold is £125,000 for residential properties and £150,000 for non-residential land and properties.

Buyers pay the tax when they:

  • Buy a freehold property
  • Buy a new or existing leasehold
  • Buy a property through a shared ownership scheme
  • Are transferred land or property in exchange for payment

Buyers must send an SDLT return to HMRC and pay the tax within 30 days of completion. A solicitor, agent or conveyancer will usually file your return and pay the tax on your behalf on the day of completion and add the amount to their fees.
