Chancellor Philip Hammond has said that, for first-time buyers who are buying properties costing up to £500,000, no stamp duty will be paid on the first £300,000. The change will be implemented immediately.
“Until now, buyers in England would be paying stamp duty, starting at 2% on all residential properties worth more than £125,000.
With the average price that first time buyers in the East Midlands pay for their homes said to be circa £158,000, those based in Burton on Trent and the surrounding area are set to make a saving of £660 through the Chancellor’s changes.”
