How will I be affected by the new LBTT supplement?

FEB 03, 2016 ‹ back to news & views

From 1 April 2016, a new LBTT supplement will be charged on additional residential properties over £40 000. If you are buying a second property such as buy-to-let or a second home costing over £40 000, you will be required to pay the additional homes supplement amounting to 3% of the whole purchase price.
