Stamp Duty Land Tax has changed!

As you are no doubt aware the Chancellor has made changes to the rate of Stamp Duty charged on a property purchase in his autumn statement.  The highlighted points are:
  •          No Stamp Duty payable on properties up to £125,000
  •          On ALL properties the first £125,000 will be free from Stamp Duty
  •          Any amount over £125,000 up to £250,000 will incur a 2% charge
  •          Charge of 5% incurred up to a sale price of £925,000
  •          Charge of 10% incurred up to a sale price of £1.5 million
  •          Then payable at 12% on any amount over this amount

The government claim that this will help 98% of home buyers but we will wait and see on that one!
