    Stamp duty on 2nd house? Confused 18th Apr 17 at 10:04 PM
    Can anyone tell me how much I would have to pay in stamp duty on 2nd house costing £168k?
    Calculator telling me £5900 but sis in law who bought recently says that is wrong.
    She says they thought they would have to pay £4,500 on approx £140k property but that it was much much less.
    Thanks everyone

    Not everyone has time to trawl through old threads and sometimes searches do not bring the correct information anyway.

    As I said, I expected a concise answer and that has kindly been provided by lovinituk in this thread. The rudeness and lectures were not necessary. Since you value your time, the time you spent editing my post instead of simply replying concisely could have been put to better use don't you think?

    You can expect all you like, if you're the one asking for help be greatful for people's efforts.

    Perhaps a SDLT sticky at the top might be a good idea?

    That way people can find their own answers without multiple variants of the same question constantly appearing.
