Being locked down with our loved ones for several months has given us all a new perspective on our lives, including the homes we live in. So it’s not surprising that suspension of the Stamp Duty Land Tax until 31 March 2021 combined with the end of the lockdown has created a huge demand from buyers wishing to move home, says conveyancing solicitor Hayley Barber from Tallents Solicitors in Newark.
“Can I now buy a house?” is a question we are being asked by clients since the reopening of the housing market in England, says Alistair Millar, Head of Conveyancing at Tallents Solicitors.
How does the lockdown affect my house purchase or sale?
There has been a lot of confusion following the reopening of the housing market but we are here to reassure our clients of the steps we are taking to ensure both their safety and progress their property transaction smoothly.
