  • Environment and Flood
  • Planning
  • Energy & Infrastructure
  • Indemnities

STAMP DUTY or LAND TRANSACTION TAX (Wales)

The amount payable depends on the purchase price of your property.  The links below take you to either the website for HMRC’s for properties in England or the Welsh Revenue Authority if the property is in Wales.   We will confirm the tax payable in our written quotation when full information is known.  The amount you have to pay depends on a number of factors, including whether:

  • the land is residential or non-residential
  • the property is freehold or leasehold
  • in the case of residential properties, you own another home elsewhere in the world
  • transactions are linked.

Similarly, there are events that could make the property exempt or cause a reduction in amount payable, e.g.

  • gifts
  • property that is left in a will
  • transfers of property in a divorce or when a civil partnership is dissolved
  • if more than six residential properties are acquired, then non-residential SDLT rates will apply
  • multiple dwellings relief can apply if two or more properties are being acquired
