Stamp Duty Holiday – only a few days left!!
Stamp Duty Holiday Ending Soon.
If you want to benefit - you need to get a move on as illustrated by the Sunday Times with data from GetAgent.
The temporary reduction in Stamp Duty has been a great incentive for those who were considering a house move but just waiting for the right time. For some buyers it can mean up to a £15,000 saving, and the scheme has proven to be very successful in maintaining a buoyant market and runs until March 2021.
Well, that right time is now for many friends, colleagues and family members. However the secret to achieving the reduction is the completion date which needs to be before the end of March 2021. The average house sale (even in these strange times) is between 3 and 6 months, this means that a Sold STC needs to be in place in the next couple of months to secure that Stamp duty discount.
March 2021 seems a long way off (204 days to be exact as of today) but you need to be focused on the length of time your property might take to sell and complete. In other words you need to be going to market sooner rather than later (See table above).
The message is clear that with the strains on the legal and local council services and staff working from home there is no time to waste to secure the saving.
Here at THSC we can help you to secure your Sold STC through our services of Home Styling, Staging and Furniture Rental.
