Stamp Duty Deadline!

Published: 30/06/2021 By Allan Fuller

We have just sold a flat in 3 days to beat the Stamp Duty Deadline!

On Monday the 28th of June at 3pm we agreed a sale of a flat in Disraeli Gardens Putney. The condition the buyer imposed was to complete in time to get the reduced stamp duty. The deadline was 30th June. It seemed impossible.

To agree terms, exchange contracts and complete in 3 days is unheard of, but both sides solicitors took up the challenge and pulled out all the stops and at 2pm on the 30th of June we received confirmation form the vendors solicitors that the deal had been done and to give the keys to the new owner!!
