What is Stamp Duty?

Stamp Duty, also known as Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) is a tax that you are required to pay when purchasing property or land that exceeds a certain value. Stamp Duty only applies for property purchased within England and Northern Ireland.

If you are purchasing property in Scotland, you will be required to pay a Land and Buildings Transaction Tax and in Wales you would pay a Land Transaction Tax. If you are looking to buy in Scotland or Wales, please get in touch to speak to one of our advisers about any tax that would be due.
