Great News - Budget 2017 cuts stamp duty for first-time buyers!!!

Date Published 22 November 2017

Chancellor Philip Hammond has abolished stamp duty for most first-time buyers in England and Wales in his Budget.

The change, effective immediately, will apply to the first £300,000 of a home's value, saving first-time buyers £5,000.

Housing had been billed as one of the key themes of the Budget - and the chancellor promised the "next generation" that getting on the housing ladder would not be just a "dream".
