Buy Before The Deadline

Buyers can save thousands by completing their purchase before the end of March, making our February auctions the ideal way to buy this year.

Stamp duty is suspended on the first £500,000 of all property sales in England and Northern Ireland, saving buyers £15,000 if they are purchasing a property of £500,000 or more. 

Buy to let investors also pay less stamp duty Those buying investment properties and homes that are not their main residence will now pay 3% stamp duty on the first £500,000 of the purchase price. Previously they would pay 3% on the first £125,000 and 5% on the next £125,001 to £250,000, rising to 8% on sale prices over £250,000 and up to £925,000. Read more.

Property transactions must be completed by 31st March to qualify.
