Stamp Duty

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) is a statutory tax payable to the government when buying property and land in the UK. Since December 2014, the tax is only payable on the part of the property price within each tax band (similar to how income tax is calculated). Introduced in April 2016, Buy-to-Let or Second Home rates are charged at 3% above SDLT.

"Several buyers for it within a few days"

Because of the great service we received when buying through them, I didn't hesitate to entrust the sale of my late mother's property to them. Communication was great throughout and they had several buyers for it within a few days. They were able to secure a good price and the whole process was seamless!
