    Stamp duty question

    Stamp duty question 10th Oct 17 at 12:38 PM
    Hi

    Just had my completion statement through from solicitor. The house I am buying is £367000 but I have been asked for £9000 stamp duty. All the online calculators say it should be £8350. Am I missing something obvious?

    Thanks


    Edit: all sorted it was a mistake.

    I'd call them and ask. We bought our house last month, exact same purchase price as you and paid £8350 we also had to pay a charge to the solicitors for the paper work, but it was around £30.

    Glad you've got your query resolved, hope the move goes well.
