Stamp duty tax has been cut in the Mini Budget

On 23rd September, Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng announced at the Mini Budget that he is reducing (and in some cases eliminating) Stamp Duty immediately for residential property buyers. 

The levy is a tax paid over a certain price when somebody buys a house, flat or a piece of land in England, where the monies owed are based on various price thresholds, as well as where you are buying.

For non-first-time buyers, the threshold at which the tax begins has been increased from £125,000 to £250,000. The remaining thresholds have remained the same, to include those buying an additional property or a second home where there is still an extra 3% to pay on top of the relevant standard rates.

Standard SDLT Rates 

Property ValueSDLT Rate
Up to £250,0000%
The next £675,000 (the portion from £250,001 to £925,000)5%
The next £575,000 (the portion from £925,001 to £1.5 million)10%
The remaining amount (the portion above £1.5 million)12%

Whilst for first time buyers, the SDLT threshold now begins at £425,000 – previously £300,000 – in a bid to give them an extra boost onto the property ladder. The value of the property on which they can claim stamp duty relief has increased from £500,000 to £625,000.

Are you wondering how much stamp duty will now cost on our homes?

We have had a look at some of our houses for sale and worked out the new SDLT for you. Perhaps you could put the saving towards something else such as new furniture, school fees or renovation works?

Homes with fireplaces or wood burners

The weather has certainly got chillier, so to help warm the body and the soul as Autumn begins, here are some of our homes for sale with wonderful fireplaces or wood burners…

Mill House, Fleet

When you see the charming facade of this home, you will be forgiven for being some what surprised given the contemporary interior… but Mill House beautifully blends old with new, and not only does its origins date back to 1755, it’s also Grade II listed. Clearview log-burners have been installed in both the front room fireplaces. The one in the drawing room, with its Georgian arched niches either side, was fitted in 2020 and has only been used 3 times! Boasting some equestrian facilities such as a hay barn, stables, tack room, you have the perfect location to relax by the fire and warm yourself up after tending to your horses on those dark cold nights. Read more

At this small country estate, the very elegant drawing room walls painted in a soft, muted mauve, are of exceptionally fine proportions and enjoys a classical period fireplace. Whilst two more reception rooms with fireplaces are used as a games room and dining room. There’s no need for a fireplace in the kitchen, however, as the underfloor heating and Aga should keep you warm and toasty in the chillier months to come. Read more

Grange Court, Carlby

This stunning barn conversion created by the current owners has two Clear-view log burners – one in the dining/family room and the other in the East Wing which has been created as flexible accommodation. The fifth bedroom is situated here and as such, offers the opportunity for guests or family members to be more independent from the main living accommodation. The current owners have used it as an extra bedroom, guest accommodation, an additional home work- ing space and have also let it out as an AirBnB. Read more

Zetland House, Grantham

This home is ideal for cat enthusiasts, because not only is it an extremely spacious 7-bed house with a two-storey adjoining annex, totalling almost 5,000 square feet of accommodation, there is also a cattery in the 10-acre grounds which consists of 27 very neatly presented pens which can take up to 63 cats as well as paddocks.

The Coach House, Colsterworth

This is an immaculately presented, converted coach house dating back to 1725, which provides the perfect, contemporary accommodation for multi-generational living with a two bedroom annex. The main living room is huge with a stove fuelled by gas in the stone inglenook fireplace, whilst in the annex there is a log burner in the cosy living room. The owners have also upgraded the EPC rating from F to D, which is hugely impressive given the building is 300 years’ old. Read more

The Old Vicarage, Gosberton

The Old Vicarage is a very handsome, period house of fine proportions with high ceilings and an abundance of original features to include original fireplaces in every room! Read more

The arched Georgian style niches flanking the fireplace are in fact new, and the unusual coving is a special bespoke,
old Georgian design.” Read more

Drove House, Surfleet

Drove House is a small country estate, where the kitchen is a very impressive aspect and ideal for baking scones or muffins after a game of tennis or a swim in your grounds.

Now it is a vast, almost square room with tiled floor and plenty of space to cook and dine under the large roof lantern in the extension which benefits underfloor heating. A fine, white Aga stands proudly in the chimney breast. Although now disconnected it can only look on at the busy electric Smeg range-style cooker. However, it could be reconnected should someone so wish. The owners say: “The kitchen was a 1960s relic – it was quite literally like stepping back in time! We do have visitors and entertain a lot, often 12 to 14 people so we have two dishwashers – I’m not sure how we manged before with just one! We have a big American-style fridge in the kitchen and another in the pantry.” Read more

An adjoining wraparound breakfast bar simulates polished concrete and provides a good run of space at which to prepare your ingredients as well as sampling your tasty creations. Read more
