Act quickly for stamp duty help

Have your say

FIRST time buyers must act quickly to take advantage of stamp duty relief, a Sheffield legal specialist has warned.

Irwin Mitchell’s conveyancing team has advised people to move fast to save up to £2,500 on the purchase of their property before the deadline of March 25.

Lisa Gibbs, who leads the team, said a rise in inquiries is expected in the next few weeks.

The stamp duty relief was introduced in March 2010 for first time buyers purchasing a property worth over £125,000 but under £250,000.
