Stamp Duty Rebate For Buy-To-Let Landlords

If you’re buying a buy-to-let property or already have one, you might be wondering whether you could be eligible for a Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) rebate. Stamp Duty in relation to buy-to-let properties works slightly differently that the tax on standard residential properties. There is a 3% additional Stamp Duty rate for those purchasing a second home, including those purchased as buy-to-let homes, meaning the added SDLT could impact what you can afford to buy. Rebates are usually available for those who overpay on Stamp Duty or pay when they are exempt. Discover how Stamp Duty works for buy-to-let properties, how you can avoid it, and how to apply for a rebate.

Is Stamp Duty Paid On Buy-To-Let Properties?

Yes, you will be required to pay Stamp Duty if you are purchasing a second or third property and the property is valued at over £40,000. In England and Northern Ireland, there is a minimum 3% extra charge on top of the standard SDLT bill. Scotland and Wales have their own tax policies which typically work in a similar way to SDLT. The amount you are required to pay may vary based on the price of the property, the Stamp Duty rate, and the surcharge for additional properties.

Reclaiming for Uninhabitable Properties

If you are a buy-to-let landlord with uninhabitable properties in your portfolio, you may have paid excessive stamp duty. We specialise in navigating the complex regulations surrounding uninhabitable relief, enabling us to assess your properties accurately and determine if you qualify for a stamp duty rebate.

As a buy-to-let landlord, you may be entitled to a refund on the 3% surcharge you paid if you already own other properties. Our expert team will guide you through the process, ensuring that you reclaim the overpaid stamp duty and receive the maximum rebate available.

How To Avoid Stamp Duty On Buy-To-Let Properties

For any property worth less than £40,000, there is no Stamp Duty to be paid. Other exemptions mean that caravans, houseboats, and any other moveable property are all excluded from the additional SDLT rate. When it comes to buy-to-let properties, if it is the first and only property you own, you will pay the normal SDLT rates without the surcharge. Other Stamp Duty exemptions include multiple dwellings relief where the purchase of multiple smaller properties can be as one transaction, reducing the SDLT required.
