In some good news for homebuyers, the Chancellor has announced reform of the stamp duty system. George Osborne claimed it will be cut for 98 per cent of homebuyers who currently pay it – which works out as a tax cut of £4,500 when buying an average £275,000 family home.
The new stamp duty rates at different band levels will only apply to the part of the property price that falls within that band, so there will no longer be a huge jump in stamp duty, for instance, on a property costing £500,001.
Under the new rules, no tax will be paid on the first £125,000 of a property, followed by 2% on the portion up to £250,000, 5% on the portion between £250,000 and £925,000, 10% on the next bit up to £1.5 million and 12% on everything over that.
