Land Registry Fees and Stamp Duty Land Tax Costs

What Are Land Registry Fees?

The Land registry fee scales vary according to:

  • First registrations
  • Transfers of registered land for value
  • Transfers of registered estate not for value
  • Exemptions
  • Fxed fees

You can read all about this on the Land registry website where you can download a brochure - Registration Service fees brochure.

What Are Stamp Duty Fees?

Firstly a stamp duty fee is called a ‘Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT)’ fee. It is a tax that is charged when you are buying a property over a certain price. The tax applicable is dependent on your purchase price. The system was improved in December 2014. Literally overnight the government improved the system. It removed the large increments that existed in the old system. For instance a property at £500,000 had a tax that was significantly larger than a property at £495,000.

The new system helped to kick start the housing market. You can budget for your Stamp Duty by visiting: http://www.calculatestampduty.co.uk

Special SDLT rules apply for the following

  1. If you are buying 2 or more properties from someone you are related to. This could be a relative or business partner
  2. If you are buying a property through a shared ownership scheme
  3. If you are transferring ownership of a property – See more at: https://www.gov.uk/sdlt-transferring-ownership-of-land-or-property
