*As per the Welsh Government's website: "There are different rules if you already own one or more residential properties and you may need to pay the higher residential rates. However, if you're replacing your main residence the higher rates may not apply. You pay the tax when you: buy a freehold property; buy a new or existing leasehold property; or are transferred land or property in exchange for payment, e.g. you take on a mortgage or buy a share in a house. How much you pay depends on whether the land or property is: residential, or non-residential or mixed-use. For full details, visit www.gov.wales
