Sdlt Buy To Let Rates



Property buyers who own and reside in a property abroad i.e. France, but intend to purchase a second property in the UK are eligible to pay the new SDLT rates. The definition of "main residence" will be based on fact (where you live) rather than subject to election, which differs from other taxes.

Yes. Caravans, houseboats, mobile homes and properties under 40,000 are exempt from the higher rate of SDLT. The consultation says, 'Transactions under 40,000 do not require a tax return to be filed with HMRC and are not subject to the higher rates.'


The consultation states that 'the government will treat married couples and civil partners living together as one unit'. As such, married couples and civil partners who own one property at the end of the day of a transaction will not pay the higher rates of SDLT. However, if either of them owns more than one residential property both may pay the higher rates when purchasing another property.


Stamp duty on buy-to-let is a relatively new property tax on second homes. It will see you paying higher rates on top of usual stamp duty land tax (SDLT) rates, so it could make your holiday home or next investment more expensive. So although buy-to-let can still be a good investment, you should do your sums carefully.


As with normal stamp duty, second home stamp duty is charged using a tiered system. So you pay an additional 3% on the first 125,000 and then an additional 5% for anything that falls within 125,001 to 250,000, and so on. These are the current rates:

For residential buy-to-let properties, the standard rates of SDLT currently (as at September 2022) start at 0% on the first \u00a3250,000 of the property value, up to 12% on any value above \u00a31.5 million.\nHowever, you\u2019ll be charged at a different rate if any of the following apply:\nYou currently own at least one other property\nIf your property purchase will result in you owning more than one property, you\u2019ll pay a 3% SDLT surcharge. This affects the majority of buy-to-let purchases, as most buyers already own their own homes. So, the applicable rates of SDLT begin at 3% up to \u00a3250,000 of the property\u2019s value up to 15% above \u00a31.5 million.\nIf you were to buy a \u00a3300,000 property and pay stamp duty at these rates, you\u2019d pay \u00a311,500 \u2013 that\u2019s \u00a39,000 more than a buyer with no other properties.\nYou\u2019re not a UK resident\nIf you\u2019re not a UK resident for SDLT purposes (i.e. you have spent more than 182 days outside of the UK in the 12 months before your property purchase), you\u2019ll pay a further 2% surcharge.\nSo, if you\u2019re an overseas investor AND you already own at least one other property, you\u2019ll be charged SDLT at the following rates:\n\n5% on the first \u00a3250,000 of the property value\n10% on the next \u00a3675,000 of the property value (i.e. \u00a3250,001-\u00a3950,000)\n15% on the next \u00a3575,000 of the property value (i.e. \u00a3950,001-\u00a31.5 million)\n17% on any value above \u00a31.5 million\n\nSo, using the same example as before, if you were to buy a \u00a3300,000 second property and pay stamp duty at these rates, you\u2019d now pay \u00a317,500.\nYou\u2019re a first-time buyer\nIt\u2019s rare that first-time buyers purchase a buy-to-let but, if you do, you\u2019ll be entitled to the same SDLT relief as any other first-time buyer.

Stamp duty land tax (SDLT) is a property tax payable to HMRC when you buy a property in England or Northern Ireland. For residential buy-to-let properties, the standard rates of SDLT currently (as at September 2022) start at 0% on the first 250,000 of the property value, up to 12% on any value above 1.5 million.


In November 2015, the Chancellor of the Exchequer announced that higher rates of Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) would apply from April 2016 to purchases of additional residential properties, such as second homes and buy-to-let properties.


Head of the Conveyancing Department, Clare Hallett, is pleased to outline which purchases will incur the higher rates. SDLT is now very complicated and operates quite differently from the old property tax known as Stamp Duty which was replaced in 2003 with SDLT. In order to ascertain that the correct SDLT is being paid we require much more detail. Please remember that, whilst the solicitor completes the form on your behalf, SDLT is a self-assessed personal tax (much like income tax).


Yes, the higher rates will apply as following the purchase you will own an additional rental property. However, if you sell your previous home within 3 years of the purchase of the new one you will be able to claim a refund from HMRC.


Yes, the higher rates of SDLT will apply as following the purchase you will own an additional residential property (and will not have replaced your main residence, i.e. sold a current main residence and purchased a new one).


Yes, the higher rates will apply to the UK purchase as following the purchase you will own an additional residential property and will not have replaced your main residence (i.e. sold your current main residence and purchased a new one). If you are treated as non resident for stamp duty land tax purposes, you will also have to pay the additional 2% surcharge.


Provided you purchase your new main residence within 3 years of the sale of your previous main residence, you are considered to be replacing your main residence and therefore the higher rates will not apply.


If you purchase a new main residence while still owning a share in your former home the higher rates will apply. However, if you are separated and this is likely to be permanent, and your previous main residence is sold within 3 years of purchasing your new one, you can apply for a refund from HMRC.


The higher rates will apply to the total purchase price as following the purchase you will own an interest in an additional residential property. For joint purchases the higher rates will apply if either of the purchasers own other residential property.


In Scotland, the Land and Buildings Transaction Tax (LBTT) replaced SDLT in 2015. LBTT rates also have the 4% surcharge on additional residential properties. For more information visit www.revenue.scot.


In Wales, the above rules applied from 1 April 2016 to 31 March 2018. From 1 April 2018 Land Transaction Tax (LTT) was introduced. LTT rates also have the 3% surcharge on additional residential properties. For more information visit -revenue-authority. 041b061a72
