Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) holiday welcomed

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) holiday welcomed

If you are thinking of selling your house then the recent announcement by the Government to introduce an immediate Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) holiday, starting from 8th July 2020 may help you decide that now is definitely a good time to move.

The Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) holiday is for properties selling for less than £500,000 and the scheme will remain in force until 31st March 2021.

Cathy Wahlberg, Managing Director at Alsters Kelley Solicitors Ltd says, “This is very welcome news and a much-needed boost for everyone involved in the property market. The Coronavirus pandemic has had a huge impact on the housing market, and it was virtually at a standstill in April and May. We saw a significant increase in new instructions in June, however, the SDLT holiday may help to reinvigorate and sustain the housing market even more.”

If you are thinking of moving home, please contact the Conveyancing team at Alsters Kelley Solicitors where they will provide you with a ‘No Hidden Fees’ quote for the legal services needed to buy and sell your home.

In addition, they have recently launched a new FREE service where they will assist you in the collating and completing of some of the essential documents you will need, which could ultimately help quicken up the conveyancing process.
