This Is Money, So On The Money At Times

and their daily mail is not a paper I`d ever buy, however, plenty of the this is money articles are..well..surprisingly good

The report, based on Land Registry figures, has added weight to calls for Gordon Brown to completely overhaul the tax, which has been blamed for inflicting a double hit on first-time buyers already reeling from high property prices.

Portman said the increased take on stamp duty comes despite a fall in the number of properties changing hands, with sales down to 737,134 during the period from 782,730 in the previous nine months.

It estimates the average homebuyer pays £3,459 in stamp duty, 9% more than the £3,184 they were paying before the change.

The Government's official figures compiled by the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister put the cost of an average home at £186,000, while the average first-time buyer's property costs £152,000.
