How to benefit from the Stamp Duty Holiday

Earlier this year, the Government announced a temporary holiday on stamp duty until March 2021, meaning that zero tax is tax payable on the first £500,000 of all home purchases. 


While this all sounds great, you may be thinking “how can I actually make the most of this deal?” Well, don’t worry. We’ve put together a short guide to ensure you make the most of the Stamp Duty holiday.

Buying a home can seem like a daunting, lengthy process. However, according to the National Post Office, in a straightforward purchase, and once your offer is accepted, you should complete the process within the 15-week national average.


With this in mind, it’s imperative to start your new home search NOW, so that you can take advantage of the stamp duty holiday before it stops at the end of March.
