Stamp duty rates cut for home purchases under £500,000 to kickstart housing market
Great news for homebuyers! Following Rishi Sunak’s announcement, stamp duty for all homes under £500,000 has been scrapped in a bid to kickstart the housing market. This move is thought to help nine in 10 homebuyers by slashing £4,500 off the bill for an average purchase. You can work out exactly your stamp duty saving would be by using a Stamp Duty Calculator (Those purchasing second homes will see the same savings and now only have to pay 3%)
Don’t worry, for those looking to purchase a home over £500,000 can still save up to £15,000!
