Rush is on to complete property deals before stamp duty holiday ends


The government’s temporary stamp duty exemption for homes priced under £175,000 expires on 31 December

First-time home buyers have just weeks to complete their deals before the government’s temporary stamp duty exemption expires. Househunters seeking properties worth between £125,000 and £175,000, who are midway through the buying process or in the early stages, should urgently chivvy along solicitors, estate agents and vendors to ensure they meet the New Year’s Eve deadline.
