Last month, we collectively breathed a sigh of relief for our sellers and buyers as Rishi Sunak confirmed an extension to the Stamp Duty holiday.
The extension has kept many dream-moves alive, free from the threat of paying a higher Stamp Duty.
The Stamp Duty holiday extension triggered an incredible 86% uplift in investors registering with us looking for properties – many of these are landlords looking to add to their existing property portfolios, which is great news!
This level of activity speaks volumes for people’s confidence in the market and, with another time-bound deadline to meet, the race to exchange contracts is well and truly on!
Don’t worry though, the deadline is far more achievable this time round. The sales process is speeding up and there will be no Stamp Duty to pay up to £250,000 through to October 1st 2021.
