As of the 22nd November 2017, Stamp Duty has been cut for first time buyers purchasing homes under the value of £300,000. This change should benefit up to 95% of first time buyers as those living in expensive areas will not pay tax on the first £300,000 of homes up to £500,000. Please note that the calculator on the right does not calculate the exemption for first time buyers, however more information can be found here

As of the 1st April 2016, people purchasing second homes or buy to let properties will have to pay a 3% surcharge on each stamp duty band. That means that for properties worth between £125,000 and £250,000, where the stamp duty is 2%, those buying a second home or buy-to-let property will pay 5%, and for properties worth more than £250,000 and up to £925,000, where the stamp duty is 5%, those buying second home or buy-to-let property will pay 8%.

Previously, in 2014 the way stamp duty rates for residential purchases are calculated within England and Wales were changed. The old structure was replaced with a progressive scale of charges levied on all transactions over £125,000. The new percentages apply to the value above each threshold up to the full purchase price, for example, in the same way that income tax operates.

If you're preparing for your next move or looking to release equity for investment, it's essential to get an up-to-date valuation from an experienced local property expert.


The Stamp Duty Calculator presumes that none (or part) of the property qualifies as mixed-use for which the current SDLT would be 4%.

*If you purchased a property and exchanged contracts before 25th November 2015 - when the Autumn Statement was delivered - you will not have to pay the higher tax rate even if you complete after 1st April 2016.

*Properties under £40,000 are not subject to second home Stamp Duty Land Tax.

Please note that this tool is an indicator only, your solicitor or tax consultant will advise you as to the actual Stamp Duty Land Tax that must be paid on completion.
