This makes investing in UK property a simple and attractive opportunity for South American investors.

When purchasing a property in the UK, taxes are payable upon sale and purchase. One such tax is Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT), which varies based on the value of the property. Currently, for international investors, the SDLT on a property worth between £0 – £250,000 is 2%, and on a property worth between £250,001 – £925,000 is 7%. It’s worth noting that SDLT rates may change, and it’s always best to consult us to understand your full tax obligations.
