Husband owns 2 properties; First House-Stamp Duty

Hi all, A friend of mine owns 2 residential properties, both rented. His wife plans to buy her first property (as she does not own any). If she buys her first house, will she pay a full Stamp Duty or will she pay reduced stamp duty? Thanks

  • Regardless of her marital status, if she is planning to reside in the property she will pay the standard rate of Stamp Duty. It's only when the property will be rented out or used as a second home that the Stamp Duty surcharge will be owed.
