Aitchbaws are calling for the 250k stamp duty limit to be raised - this Beeb article tells you all about it.
"if those thresholds had gone up in line with house price inflation since 1997, the £250,000 limit would now be £680,000 and the £500,000 barrier would be £1.36m."Which is an interesting point - remember our illustrious leaders are pocketing £7500 each time a property sells for £250,000 (That's a two bedroom flat in Edinburgh). Where is this money going?
And just to make me angrier...
"research showed the average stamp duty bill was highest in Edinburgh (at £2,027) and East Renfrewshire (£1,916)."Even if the government take this on board, it'll be too late for me, and I'll be £7500 poorer for no good reason, other than the government are bastards. BOHICA.
