Buying or Letting a Commercial Property

Commercial property incorporates a variety of different types of property. A commercial property is anything from a pub/shop, industrial unit or bare land.

Stamp duty for a residential purchase which are not your own personal residence (i.e. investment properties), starts at £40,000. However, if you are buying “commercial property” the rates start at £150,000. HMRC considers anything that is non-residential, will be charged at the “commercial property” rates.
