The current SDLT threshold is £125,000 for residential properties or land with full planning permission and £150,000 for non-residential land and properties.
You pay must pay the Stamp Duty tax if any of the following apply:
- You buy a freehold property

- You are transferred land or property in exchange for payment e.g. you take on a mortgage or buy a share in a house

How much you pay
Property or lease premium or transfer value
Up to £125,000 (excluding purchases below £40,000)
The next £125,000 (the portion from £125,001 to £250,000)
|The next £675,000 (the portion from £250,001 to £925,000)||5%|
|The next £575,000 (the portion from £925,001 to £1.5 million)||10%|
|The remaining amount (the portion above £1.5 million)||12%|
If you buy a house for £275,000, the Stamp Duty you owe is calculated as follows:
|0% on the first £125,000 =||£0|
|2% on the next £125,000 =||£2,500|
|5% on the final £25,000 =||£1,250|
|Total SDLT payable =||£3,750|
