If you buy a property over a specific price, you will need to pay tax. Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) applies in England and Northern Ireland, Land and Buildings Transaction Tax (LBTT) applies in Scotland and Land Transaction Tax (LTT) applies in Wales.
The rates for each tax vary by country, and by price bracket. First time buyers in England and Northern Ireland will pay less or no tax if the property price is less than £425,000. In Scotland this is £175,000.
