Sweeping changes to stamp duty were announced in the Chancellor’s Autumn Statement in December 2014. Stamp duty has been reformed – the slab system (where you’d pay a single rate on the ENTIRE property price) has been swept away, and in its place is a more progressive system.
Under the new system, you’ll only pay the rate for the proportion of the property that’s at that rate.
What stamp duty rate will I pay?
