Barratt homes extends stamp duty holiday period for homes worth up to £250,000 — December 16, 2009
It has been confirmed that the stamp duty holiday on homes that are worth £175,000 is to come to an end at the end of this year. But Barratt homes have extended this offer into the New Year on its homes. And will pay the Stamp Duty on all of its homes up to £250,000.
Across the nation, Barratt homes will be exempt from this stamp duty because Barratt has paid on behalf of the home owners.
The head of Sales and Marketing at Barratt homes expressed his enthusiasm about this move. He said that when people want to move, stamp duty is an additional cost that they often cannot deal with. He also quoted instances of when stamp duty becomes the decisive factor between being able to purchase a house or not.
He further said that 2010 was not good for people looking to purchase property that is worth £175,000 or above. But buying from Barratt however will mean that you are exempt from stamp duty, even on a home of up to £250,000.
