Stamp Duty: What You Need to Know

Buying a home is an exciting milestone, but it often comes with additional costs, including stamp duty.


What is Stamp Duty?

Stamp duty is a tax levied by governments on the purchase of property and land. It's typically paid by the buyer, although regulations may vary by region.


How is Stamp Duty Calculated?

The amount of stamp duty you'll pay depends on various factors, such as the property's value, whether it's your primary residence and the location. Rates are typically progressive, meaning that the percentage increases as the property value rises.
