Can I save money on stamp duty?

Angela Ellis

If you’re looking to take advantage of the stamp duty holiday, time is of the essence! Although there are 5 months remaining until the end of the stamp duty holiday, with the volume of transactions going through, there’s a bottleneck meaning that parts of the process are taking much longer than normal. 

Need to sell?

This deadline of March 2021 is particularly relevant if you have a property to sell first. If your home is not yet on the market, we’d urge you to take action on this so you don’t miss out on the significant number of buyers currently hunting for their next home. We’d love to help you with your sale. The first step would be to understand how much your home is worth in the current market. Our free market appraisal service will provide this valuation backed up with comparable prices of properties we’ve sold together with properties on the market so you can be sure that sale price is achievable. 

Looking to buy?

The market is flooding with buyers just like you who want to take advantage of the stamp duty holiday. Aside from ensuring you’re registered with us to hear about properties as soon as they come onto the market, what else can you do to avoid missing out? An obvious one is to be available for viewings. Those who can view as soon as possible are likely to have their offer in before those who can only view every other Wednesday at 3pm. It’s also worth talking to our mortgage advisors (or your own) to understand what you can afford so you can view properties with confidence.
