Stamp Duty holiday

Stamp Duty savings were extended by the Government for home buyers in England.

That means, if you buy a home up to the value of £250,000 before 30th September, you still won’t need to pay any Stamp Duty, and even if you are buying a home over £250,000, you will make a saving.

What do the changes mean for you?

Stamp Duty is the tax charged by the Government when you buy a home.

Following the Government announcement in England:

  • From 1st July until 30th September 2021, no Stamp Duty is payable on homes up to £250,000, so you could save up to £2,500 until 30th September 2021.

  • From 1st October 2021, the Stamp Duty free threshold will return to £125,000, so act now to benefit from the savings.

  • If you are a first time buyer and the purchase price is under £300,000, you will also pay no Stamp Duty. If the purchase price is between £300,001 and £500,000, you will only pay 5% Stamp Duty on this portion.
