Stamp Duty Holiday

During July 2020, as an economic response to the pandemic, there was a stamp duty holiday that was introduced. The stamp duty holiday period introduced a zero-rate on standard purchases increasing from £125,000 to £500,000 which meant a lot of the home movers or first-time buyers were not required to pay any stamp duty land tax.

Stamp Duty (SDLT) for First-time Buyers

As of 1st July 2021, the first-time buyer relief was reintroduced. This means anyone purchasing a property for the first time, they will not pay any stamp duty tax on property purchases below £300,000. There is also a further relief available for transactions on properties worth up to £500,000.

 

Stamp Duty for Buy to Let & Second Homes

If someone is looking at purchasing an additional property, then the stamp duty rate is increased in comparison to what a first-time buyer would pay. The higher rates only apply when there is an additional property being bought.

Stamp duty when replacing your main residence/main home

If you are looking to move home, then the higher rate of stamp duty does not usually apply. If a previous home however is not sold immediately, then the stamp duty can be calculated at the higher rate. However, it is then possible to claim the refund later within a 12-month period (after selling the previous home), as long as the old home is sold within 3 years of purchasing the new one.

Stamp Duty for non-UK Residents or International Buyers

Someone living overseas looking to purchase a property in England or Northern Ireland, will pay an additional 2% in stamp duty. Someone buying an additional property in the highest bracket, the highest stamp duty will mean a 17% SDLT.

Someone who is not in the UK for at least 183 days in the 12-month period, including British expats based overseas, will have a non-UK resident status will be subject to the surcharge. The rates of stamp duty and land tax for non-UK residents was introduced in April 2021 with homes to control the house price inflation and to control foreign investment, to give UK residents a chance to get on the property ladder.
