STAMP DUTY

Stamp Duty is the tax charged by the Government when you buy a home. 

If you’re moving home or buying a property, it’s important that you know how much Stamp Duty you’ll need to pay so that you can budget for this before making a final offer.

As of September 2022, the Government announced changes to Stamp Duty meaning you could save thousands when you move to an energy-efficient, brand-new home.

Stamp Duty is the tax charged by the Government when you buy a home, previously of more than £125,000, now £250,000.

WHAT DO THESE CHANGES MEAN FOR YOU?

  • The Government has reformed Stamp Duty by doubling the level at which people begin paying this, from £125,000 to £250,000.
  • In addition, they have increased the level at which first time buyers start paying Stamp Duty from £300,000 to £425,000. 
  • These measures will reduce Stamp Duty costs for all movers by up to £2,500, with first time buyers able to access savings of up to £11,250^
