Stamp Duty – Can We Request That The Vendor Pays?

We offered £123k for a property on the market at £138k which has been rejected – they will not go below £135k. It has been up for sale for 6 months initially at £145k then £140k. My issue is not so much with the price but having to pay stamp duty, the EA said that we could offer X amount and request that they pay the stamp duty for us – is this allowed? It doesn’t help if they just knock it off the agreed price as most of it would be mortgaged – we would require that they pay the actual amount. Any advice appreciated.
