Stamp Duty changes announced

In light of the Chancellor’s announcement to temporarily increase the Stamp Duty Land Tax threshold for purchases up to £500,000.00 until 31 March 2021, there is no better time to move home!

The extra money it will generate could make that dream home now affordable.

Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak has announced that there will be no stamp duty on homes selling for £500,000 or less; this temporary holiday will last until the end of March 2021. The threshold for ‘no stamp duty’ therefore rises with immediate effect from £125,000 to £500,000.

We  have many clients who will be affected by this and they can rest assured that our property team will be working on their transactions in a priority order.
