You can also use this table to work out the SDLT for the purchase price of a lease (the 'lease premium'). You'll usually have to pay 3% on top of the normal SDLT rates if buying a new residential property means you'll own more than one above. You won't pay the extra 3% SDLT if the property you're buying is replacing your main residence and that has already been sold.

This area has become extremely desirable since the Harrods Depository was sold and developed into Harrods Village, a prestigious riverside gated development providing high quality apartments and houses with the use of a leisure centre that includes an indoor 25 metre swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna, steam room and solarium. There is also a conference room with office facilities. Next to Harrods Village is the idyllic and peaceful Barnes Waterside development with a mixture of grand detached houses, semi detached townhouses and luxurious apartments all surrounded by beautiful landscaped gardens and a pond.

Throughout the process they kept us informed of any changes, and provided advice and guidance when we asked. Most importantly, they were always happy to let us re-view the property when we needed to. Cannot recommend them enough! I have been a customer of Charles Banks for more than 15 years. Being most of the time away from London you have to trust an estate agent fully, and they are absolutely trustful.
