The Chancellor has announced today that the current Stamp Duty Land Tax holiday, which means no stamp duty is paid on the first £500,000 of a property purchase, will be extended until 30th June 2021.
This relief will subsequently be reduced to the first £250,000 of a purchase until the end of September, before returning to pre-pandemic levels from the start of October.
There are different rules for second properties, and from 1st April 2021 different rules are coming into force for non-UK residents.
