Stamp Duty Calculator

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) is a tax which is payable if you buy property or land in excess of the government designated price band within England, Wales and Northern Ireland. This is subject to change during the budget but currently, for residential property the present threshold at which SDLT becomes payable is £125,000 and for non-residential property and land, the SDLT threshold is £150,000

SDLT is payable when you:-

  • Buy a freehold property

  • Buy and existing or new leasehold property

  • Buy a property through a shared ownership scheme

  • Transfer land or property in exchange for payment e.g. you take on a mortgage or buy a share of a property

SDLT increases in portions above the property price of £125,000 as follows:-

Property Price / Lease Premium / Transfer Value

"My experience of renting a property with D&S showed the care and attention taken in chasing me up after viewing and the hassle-free build up in getting the ball rolling made us feel like we were the people they wanted to have the rental. They gave us the time we needed to make choices and get things in order which made the move a lot less stressful - I mean who needs more stress while moving house! A personal and professional service by the ladies at D&S lettings made us want the property even more."
