Buy-to-let stamp duty calculator

Calculate how much buy-to-let stamp duty you'll pay if you're buying a rental property or holiday home.

If you’re buying a property and intend to let it out or use it as a second/holiday home, you will have to pay a different rate of stamp duty from other buyers. The buy-to-let stamp duty calculator below lets you work out exactly how much tax you'll have to pay.

If you’re a first-time buyer, you won’t be able to take advantage of the usual first-time buyer stamp duty rates, as they only apply if you are intending to live in the property most or all of the time. Instead, you’ll pay home mover rates.

If you've ever bought a property before, regardless of whether it's been for yourself to live in or as a buy-to-let investment, you’ll have to pay buy-to-let stamp duty rates. These work out at 3% extra on each tier of the tax compared to home mover rates.
