Budget for your legals

Planning ahead for your move and costing out the legal process is so important. The Stamp Duty rate changes if you are buying an additional property such as a Buy to Let rather than simply moving home.

Buying an additional residential property

A higher rate of SDLT is applicable if you are buying an additional residential property or Buy to Let. The stamp duty rates change for increasing portions of the property price above £125,000 for your main residence home and £40,000 for additional property. Your Solicitor must submit a return to HMRC for all residential transactions, even if they fall in the band where no Stamp duty applies.

What happens if you complete on your new home but haven't sold your own home?

If you are moving home and have sufficient funds to buy your new home without selling your own home then this is treated as an additional property. You have to pay a higher SDLT rate tax. You have up to 36 months to sell your first home. At which time you can claim the difference between the standard SDLT tax and the Higher SDLT tax. Some cash buyers, company move buyers do find themselves in this situation.

We make it easy for your to budget for your legal costs when buying property.

Stamp duty Tax applies even if the additional property is vacant on completion.

For reference the higher rate Stamp Duty Tax apply to properties completing after 1st April 2016
