When you buy a residential property in England, Wales and Northern Ireland which is greater than £125,000 then a Stamp Duty Tax levy is applicable. The tax applies to houses, flats, land and other buildings and the amount you have to pay is based on the property’s value at the time of purchase. Stamp Duty Land Tax no longer applies in Scotland. Instead you pay Land and Buildings Transaction Tax.
