New stamp duty rates take effect as of today (1st July 2021).

Although the higher discount period has now elapsed, there is still a stamp duty on the first £250k, which means that everyone (except first time buyers under £500k) will save £2,500 if they complete before 1st October.


First time buyers of properties under £500k will still benefit from the same discounts that were in place before, taxing the first £300k of their purchase at 0%. 



For non-first time buyers (or first time buyers of properties over £500k) the rates are as follows. 



For anyone buying a second home (such as buy-to-let) the above rates increased by 3%, as below.
