Abolishing Stamp Duty Land Tax for Certain First-time Buyers
With immediate effect, first-time buyers will pay no stamp duty on homes costing no more than £300,000.
They will pay the normal rates of stamp duty on the price above that. This will save £1,660 on the average first-time buyer property.
80% of people buying their first home will pay no stamp duty, but there will be no relief for those buying properties over £500,000.
