With only two months remaining, first-time buyers must act quickly to avoid paying Stamp Duty Land Tax on their first home purchase

After the tax exemption has come to an end first-time buyers will face a tax of 1% on house purchases between £125,000 and £250,000, and a 3% tax on purchases over £250,000

First-time buyers are the key to a healthy property market, and we anticipate the number of people completing the purchase of their first home continuing to increase through February and March to beat the deadline
