The impact of the recent changes in the levels of Stamp Duty

Christine Hadfield, Conveyancing Executive in Astle Paterson’s Conveyancing Department discuss the impact of the recent changes to Stamp Duty on the property market.

Chris said “I am pleased to report that, in the main, the recent changes in the levels of Stamp Duty have proved positive for most people.

I am hopeful that the changes will spur on new purchasers and will therefore encourage the property market to continue its steady growth.

If you are considering selling your property now is a good time in the year to attend to or finish off those little jobs around your home in order to make your property as attractive as possible to potential purchasers who will be looking to move house in the springtime and summertime.

At Astle Paterson we pride ourselves in giving an efficient and prompt service.

To continue to ensure that we are giving the best possible legal service we have recently introduced client feedback questionnaires – which give our clients the opportunity to put across any comments they would like to make to further improve on our already high level of client satisfaction.

You will find our conveyancing team are friendly and efficient.   Our core value is one of regular, informative, communication between clients, solicitors and estate agents which in turn ensures your transaction proceeds smoothly – and on-time!”
