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

"I would just like to say a huge thank you to the Lettings Team at Douglas and Simmons. When I needed to rent a property at very short notice they found a lovely house almost immediately and I was able to move in within two weeks. When the inevitable teething problems crept in, they were always on hand to resolve them, even coming round to the property to check everything was ok. I’ve always found each of them to be friendly, approachable, efficient and very competent and I would have absolutely no hesitation in thoroughly recommending them to anybody thinking of renting in the area."
