When is stamp duty paid?
When buying a property over a certain price, stamp duty is payable to the HMRC 14 days from the date of completion or you may risk a fine. Your solicitor or legal adviser should take care of this for you and ensure you don't miss the deadline. Some buyers prefer to add on the stamp duty tax amount to their mortgage loan. Please speak to your mortgage provider.
