Stamp Duty to pay is

The effective tax rate is 0.00%

You usually pay Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) on the portion of the property price when you buy a residential property.

The table below shows the rates of stamp duty someone buying their next home would pay..

If the property is an additional property or second home there will be an extra 3% to pay on top of the relevant standard rates.

Purchase price of property Rate of Stamp Duty Additional Property Rate*
£0 - £250,000 0% 3%
£250,001 - £925,000 5% 8%
£925,001 - £1,500,000 10% 13%
Over £1.5 million 12% 15%

* You must pay the higher Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) rates when you buy a residential property (or a part of one) for £40,000 or more, if all the following apply:

  • it will not be the only residential property worth £40,000 or more that you own (or part own) anywhere in the world
  • you have not sold or given away your previous main home
  • no one else has a lease on it which has more than 21 years left to run

You may have to pay the higher rates even if you intend to live in the property you’re buying (and regardless of whether or not you already own a residential property).

This is because the rules do not apply only to you (the buyer), but also to anyone you’re married to or buying with.
