Will stamp duty be paid in full?


The council will itself pay the stamp duty for the acquisition of the existing home. The council will then also cover all stamp duty costs when a homeowner is moving to a newly built home on their estate. Where a resident or non-resident homeowner sells their property, and moves away from the estate, then they will be eligible for compensation for additional costs within a 12-month period associated with acquiring a new home, such as the stamp duty associated with acquiring a new property. The reimbursement of any SDLT costs will be capped at a level that matches the amount payable on the purchase of a home of the same value as the home you are selling to the council.
