How do you calculate SDLT and how much should it be on a £1161000 residence?


The Stamp Duty you will owe will rely on a small range of considerations, including the house's value. Stamp duty will be £58050 on a £1161000 property in Downton.


Does your solicitors company get involved in the conveyancing for auction properties in Downton?


Our company is very competent with residential property auction conveyancing. Typically more complicated to convey homes like barn conversions, are purchased in auctions and these demand greater inquiries before completing. We therefore strongly encourage bidders to instruct a SRA regulated conveyancing firm in advance of the property auction date to allow for a review.

After the auction day itself your dedicated lawyer is wholly focused on finishing all of the legal work inside a month as typically required .
