You may have heard about the stamp duty changes that were announced in the Autumn Statement in 2015. If you haven’t, stamp duty rates are set to rise a whopping 3% on all buy-to-let and second home purchases.


Whether you’re new to property development or a seasoned pro, the deadline to purchase your next buy to let is the 1st April 2016!


Miss the deadline and you could see your stamp duty tax bill rocket.

An example of just how urgent this is? If you wanted to take on a £275,000 buy-to-let or second home, the current rate of stamp duty means a £3,750 bill. From April, for investors and second home owners, it will be £12,000!
