What Is Stamp Duty?
You usually pay Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) on increasing portions of the property price when you buy residential property, for example a house or flat. Stamp Duty only applies to properties over a certain value. The amount you pay depends on:
- > When you bought the property
- > How much you paid for it
