Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) is a government tax that is charged when you buy a property in England or Northern Ireland.
The amount of stamp duty you pay depends on the price of the property and whether it is residential, non-residential or mixed use.
First Time Buyers are exempt from paying stamp duty for property purchases up to £300,000. If over £300,000 you will pay 5% up to £500,000 and then 10% up to 1.5m. If the property is over £1.5m then the rate increases to 12%.
