    Stamp duty rates 16th Jun 17 at 7:20 PM
    My situation is this,
    I own a property value around £220,000 which I currently live in, I have also just inherited a property valued at around £175,000 which will be rented out for the foreseeable future.
    My question is this, If I sell my main residence and purchase a new home for around £300,000 will the stamp duty on the new house be at the higher rate because I have the inherited property as well.

    No - if you are replacing your main residence the additional SDLT doesn't apply.

    You currently own two properties and after completion of the purchase of your new main residence you will still own two properties.

    Surcharge doesn't apply.
