DUTY. If you are planning the sale of your home in 2016 you will probably benefit directly, or indirectly, from the increased activity of buyers anxious to avoid the newly announced increase of Stamp Duty tax – but only if you act now!

From April 2016 this unexpected legislation in the budget will significantly increase the 
cost of Stamp Duty tax for second home buyers and buy-to-let investors, possibly creating a negative impact affecting the whole market 
by reducing the number of 
buyers in lower price ranges with a knock-on effect moving upward through the market.

While buyer activity 
continues at the present
level anyone considering selling next year should bring their plans forward if possible.
