How Much Is Stamp Duty on Houses?

Answer

The amount charged as stamp duty depends on the purchase price of the property. For example, for property worth £125,001 to £250,000 the stamp duty payable is 1%. However, If the property you’re buying is in an area the Government considers to be disadvantaged, you will be exempt from stamp duty if the property costs £150,000 or less.
