Hi. My name is*****'m looking at your question now and will post my answer or ask for more information here in a short while.
Where in the UK is the property?
Thanks. I only needed to know which of the 4 countries it was in.
A 3% surcharge on the regular stamp duty rates was introduced for post 1 April 2016 purchases of residential property where the buyer already owns a property no matter where in the world that is unless the new purchase is replacing a previous main home. Take a look at the consultation results HERE. Paragraphs 1.5 and 1.38 will be of relevance to you.
Using the calculator HERE, the stamp duty charge on a £275,000 purchase will be £12,000.
I hope this helps but let me know if you have any further questions.
