7. Stamp Duty Land Tax

If you buy property for more than £125,000, you pay Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) of between 1% and 7% on the whole purchase price.

You still have to pay SDLT if you swap something of economic value for a property, eg shares, another property.

You don’t pay any SDLT if you pay £125,000 or less.
