Stamp Duty Calculator
Use our free stamp duty calculator to calculate what your stamp duty costs will be. When purchasing a property of £120,000 or more, the stamp duty land tax (SDLT) must be figured into the overall cost of the transaction. Our quick and easy stamp duty calculator can tally this additional cost on buying new property.
To compensate for property inflation due to the UK housing market boom, the stamp duty was reformed in 2005 and now only properties £120,000 and above are subject to the tax. However, with the average cost of a house in the UK at nearly £200,000, most homebuyers won't avoid the stamp tax. Using the stamp duty calculator can help you anticipate this cost and not break budget due to a hefty tax.
How Much Is Stamp Duty?
Some people who are buying property will qualify for Disadvantaged Area Relief. Your solicitor or conveyancer should identify this during the freehold transaction and apply for the stamp duty to be waived. If you are not sure and want to check for yourself, visit the website of HM Revenue & Customs and do a electoral ward or postcode (Scotland) search for the property.
