Stamp Duty Reforms are Good News

Stamp duty tax reforms are now here and good news for Holroyd Miller customers as they look forward to huge savings when purchasing a new home.

Under the previous stamp duty system purchasers would have been paying £1300 on top of the purchase price to secure their dream home; now under the reformed system one hundred pounds is the amount they will pay.

Simon Miller, director at Holroyd Miller says: “This really is good news for our customers. Another door has just opened to make buying a home easier, this is really good news fro our customers - very positive.”
