|HM Land Registry fee||£100.00||Nil||£100.00|
|Electronic money transfer fee||£40.00||£8.00||£48.00|

The Stamp Duty or Land Tax you pay depends on the purchase price of your property, and whether or not you are a UK resident.
You can calculate the amount you will need to pay by using HMRC’s website for properties in England, or the Welsh Revenue Authority’s website for properties in Wales.
The current threshold, where Stamp Duty Land Tax starts to apply, is currently set at £250,000.00 for a residential property (not first time buyer or second property). If your purchase price exceeds this sum, then you would pay Stamp Duty or Land Tax on any amount over the £250,00.00. Therefore, for our example above, there would be no Stamp Duty Land Tax to pay.
The prices provided above are a general guide. Our estimated fee assumes that:
- this is a standard transaction and that no unforeseen matters arise including for example (but not limited to) a defect in title which requires remedying prior to completion, or the preparation of additional documents ancillary to the main transaction
- the transaction is concluded in a timely manner and no unforeseen complications arise
- all parties to the transaction are co-operative and there is no unreasonable delay from third parties in providing documentation
- you are not an investment buyer
- no indemnity insurance is required
As each transaction is different we are very happy to discuss your individual situation and provide you with a more precise and personalised quote, so please do get in touch with us.
