Stamp duty overhaul planned for September

An overhaul of stamp duty to boost home ownership is being planned by Boris Johnson. The new Prime Minister is considering abolishing the levy on homes worth less than £500,000 and making sellers pay, not buyers. He has also promised to help “cheated” leaseholders so they are no longer trapped in properties that are unsellable or unmortgageable because of spiralling charges.
