Case Studies
On 1st April 2016 stamp duty increased by an additional 3% on purchases for second properties. A client, who has a considerable portfolio of properties, wanted to sell 3 properties to enable them to purchase a further 2 properties before the end of March 2016, so as not to incur the higher stamp duty rate. Mel undertook to ensure that the client’s instructions were met and brought all transactions to a successful conclusion within the required timeframe.
