The housing market has been given the go ahead to stay open and we will continue to operate in the safest way possible, meaning we will still be able to help you move over this period. Following government guidance, our office doors will be locked and should only be visited by appointment only so that we can create the safest environment for you to speak to a member of our team. And of course, we are just a phone call away so don’t hesitate to get in touch to find out more.
Get started soon to make sure you don’t miss out on the stamp duty holiday. The 31st March will come round quickly and we are experiencing delays from some mortgage lenders meaning that some sales are taking longer to go through. For this reason we recommend that you get started as soon as possible if you are thinking about moving. We are receiving high levels of enquiries, with many properties receiving multiple offers, so it is a great time to market your home. The best way to start is to book a market appraisal to find out what your home is worth currently. With 3 offices in the WD3 postcode, each month we register hundreds of people looking to buy in the area so we know what people are looking for.
During the stamp duty holiday, buyers pay no stamp duty up to £500,000, meaning that if you are buying below this level you won’t pay any at all and over this level you will only pay based on the increment above the £500,000 mark. This means that the maximum saving that can be made is £15,000, so it is definitely worth taking advantage of if you are looking to move. If you are unsure about what this means for you, please speak to a member of our team on and we will be happy to help.
