The Cost of Moving – How Much Stamp Duty Will I Have to Pay?

Agent fees, stamp duty and solicitors – we talk about how much moving home will actually cost you.

Every client I’ve ever met has asked me the all-important question - “how much will it cost me to move home?”.

With the stamp duty holiday recently coming to an end and demand for houses being at a record high, it’s more important than ever to plan your move beforehand to avoid overstretching your budget or encountering any financial surprises.

If you’re fortunate enough to be buying your first home, then you will not have to pay stamp duty up to £300,000. For all other buyers, stamp duty is calculated as follows: (image of the stamp duty tiers with normal buyers and the higher rate for Investors). 


Other costs to take into consideration include: 

  • The solicitor acting on your purchase/sale.
  • Home removals
  • Estate agent fees (if you’re selling your home)
  • Any fees/penalties associated with changing your mortgage

 This can all sound a bit overwhelming, especially if you are a first time seller! If you have any concerns over the financial side of the move, do not hesitate to get in contact and we can walk you through it. Alternatively, if you think you are ready to take the plunge, book a valuation with us today!
