Stamp Duty changes

The stamp duty holiday ended on 30th September 2021

The good news is that you still won’t pay stamp duty on homes up to £125,000, or £300,000 if you’re a first time buyer! See the table below for the new rates from 1st October.

Property or lease premium or transfer value SDLT rate
Up to £125,000 Zero
The next £125,000 (the portion from £125,001 to £250,000) 2%
The next £675,000 (the portion from £250,001 to £925,000) 5%
The next £575,000 (the portion from £925,001 to £1.5 million) 10%
The remaining amount (the portion above £1.5 million) 12%

Those purchasing an additional or buy-to-let property are required to pay an additional 3% surcharge on top of each stamp duty band.


First-time buyers can still benefit from a reduction after 1st October 2021. This means you’ll pay:

  • no stamp duty up to £300,000
  • 5% stamp duty on the portion from £300,001 to £500,000

You’re eligible if you and anyone else you’re buying with are first-time buyers.

If the price is over £500,000, you’ll pay 5% on the portion up to £925,000, and 10% on anything over that.
