In December 2014, new rates were introduced. This means that 98% of homebuyers will be paying less when compared to previous rates.
Stamp Duty is the tax charged by the government when you buy a home for more than £125,000. The rate you pay depends on the value of your home and changed in England and Wales in December 2014.
Under the old rules, you paid a flat rate depending on the value of your property – that same rate applied to the entire transaction. Under the new rules the rate changes on a sliding scale.
Almost all homebuyers have benefitted from the changes. A typical new home in the UK costing £275,000 will now only attract a tax of £3,750, compared to £8,250 under the old rules. The changes will take thousands of pounds off the cost of moving into a brand new Hodson Developments home, making that dream more affordable for thousands of homebuyers. And when it’s combined with Help to Buy, requiring just a 5% deposit, it means moving to a new home now costs much less than you think!
