Stamp Duty Increase From £120k To £125k

Recommended Posts

The increase from £120k to £125k was supposed to "help first-time-buyers" but, if anything, it will do the opposite.

House prices cluster around the stamp duty thresholds. So nobody would try to sell a house between £120k and £140k (for example).

All the government has done is raise the artificial ceiling so now a first-time-buyer who might have been lucky enough to buy a house under £120k will have to find an extra £5k!
