Stamp Duty Land Tax for Landlords

Landlord Tools

Here are a couple of handy landlord tools.

First there is a table to show you just how much Stamp Duty Land Tax you will have to pay as a landlord. Details are correct as of Spring 2017.

Below that is a useful tool to work out the effective yield on any property - you'll need to know the purchase price, the gross rent, the service charges, agent fees etc.

Landlord's Rental Yield Calculator

First work out the actual annual rent you will receive after deducting agent's commission, repairs and renewals and any service charges and insurance. Enter this amount into the Net Annual Rent box.

Then enter the TOTAL purchase price including transaction expenses, surveys etc into the Total Purchase Price box.

Click Calculate. This will give your real annual yield on the investment. Obviously how much you actually receive in your pocket will depend on your own personal borrowing costs etc.
