Stamp Duty Holiday to End

Posted: 7th February 2012   In: Residential Conveyancing

With the stamp duty holiday for first-time buyers buying properties under £250,000 due to end on March 24, there could be a rush to buy amongst first time buyers.

With lending from the major banks still cautious, first time buyers will inevitably turn to other sources, such as family members, for help to beat the stamp duty holiday. Not seeking legal advice could cost you dear in the long run.

We will talk through all the options available, and provide alternatives, such as parents acting as loan guarantors or entering into a joint ownership agreement. We are trained experts and are highly experienced in navigating the maze of paper work and dealings with house purchases. Not only will we offer the best advice and service, as recognised by our CQS status, we will help to avoid some unforeseen hazards that may occur down the line.

Please contact Eugene Pritchard or Steve Smith for more information about the issue raised in this article.
