Stamp Duty Land Tax Holiday

stamp duty holiday 400 wide

We are working in unprecedented circumstances arising both from the COVID 19 Pandemic and also the current Stamp Duty Land Tax incentive deadline. Demand is unusually high and we are experiencing extremely high levels of calls and emails.

We kindly ask that you bear with us during this time as there will be delays due to factors outside of our control. Turnaround times for surveys, mortgages, and searches have slowed considerably and this affects the timescale of a transaction.

At present the government is granting a stamp duty holiday until 31st March 2021. Whilst we appreciate that you will be keen to benefit from this government granted relief we cannot make any guarantees or confirm that the matter will complete in time for you to obtain the reduction. By continuing to instruct us on this matter you are acknowledging that the matter may not benefit from the stamp duty holiday and that you are aware that the normal rates of stamp duty will be payable for your type of transaction.
