Stamp duty rates.

The rate of stamp duty is dependent on the value of a home. The tax is payable by the purchaser when a property is sold.

Since March 24th 2012 stamp duty rates for first time buyers have reverted to normal levels and a new higher stamp duty rate has been introduced for more expensive homes.

Stamp duty rates for first time buyers.

Concessionary stamp duty rates were introduced for first time buyers for a period of two years from April 2010. This meant first time buyers wouldn't have to pay stamp duty on any house purchased up to the value of 250,000. 

This concessionary stamp duty rate replaced the normal 1% and 3% stamp duty rates and applied to first time buyers only. First time buyer stamp duty rates were valid until 24th March 2012.
