    To my knowledge. If you are buying a New property you dont pay stamp duty as such as you are paying VAT ( however there is a small amount under 1%)

    If the property is second hand you pay around 6%. These may have changed. But certainly no way there is a double stamp duty ot VAT . It is against the basic fundamentals of taxation

    I was also confused over this!
    Didn’t realise stamp duty had to be paid on property and again on mortgage.

    I found the following link helpful-
