  • Typically not, however stamp duty is a tax which is traditionally paid by the buyer, however there is nothing stopping you asking the seller to pay or at least contribute to some of the cost.

  • Yes, some lenders will allow you to add stamp duty and other legal costs to your mortgage, but remember you will be paying a great deal more in the long run. It is best to save up for these costs, including stamp duty.

  • Potentially but it may not be straight forward anymore (it was quite common with mortgage cashbacks etc) but as rightly identified you would likely suffer in terms of the rate the mortgage company offers you. If you are struggling you could ask for a contribution.
