It’s not too late to take advantage of the government’s Stamp Duty holiday tax break, which is due to end on 31 March 2021.

 

Currently, the threshold at which no tax is paid on property purchases is £500,000, up from £125,000 – meaning that until the end of March next year, eight in 10 buyers will pay no Stamp Duty on their purchase.

With time running out, you need to move quickly. To accelerate the process, get an ‘agreement in principle’ from a lender, enlist the services of a solicitor and surveyor who will be ready to assist you when you are ready to proceed.

We understand the market and that time is of the essence, so come to us. We’ll waste no time in finding the most suitable mortgage deal for you.

Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage
