How much Stamp Duty will I pay?
From 22nd November 2017 Stamp Duty relief was introduced to First Time Buyers purchasing a residential property of up to £500,000.
No stamp duty is payable if you are purchasing property for up to £300,000 or less. Where the purchase price is over £300,000 but doesn’t exceed £500,000 you will pay 5% on the remaining £200,000.
Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) is a fee that must be paid when you purchase a property above a certain value. You will have to factor this in your budget on top of your deposit when purchasing a property.
On 8th July Rishi Sunak announced in the Chancellor’s mini budget a temporary holiday on stamp duty in England and Northern Ireland to try and boost the property market.
