Make the most of sensational stamp duty savings!

Posted on July 16th, 2020

no stamp duty to payStamp duty? Forget about it! Because if you buy a new home costing £500,000 or less, there won’t be any stamp duty to pay.

And that’s a massive boost to your budget, if you’ve been planning a house move. Now is the time to make the most of the stamp duty holiday – and save £1000s on the cost of buying your next home.

So what will you save? According to the latest Halifax building society report, the average house price is now £237,616. Until this month the stamp duty payable on this ‘average property’ would have been £2,252 – now, there’s nothing to pay!

For houses costing more than £250,000, stamp duty was charged at a whopping 5% before July. Now the money you would have paid in stamp duty, on any house up to the value of £500,000, is yours – to save and spend exactly where you need it most!

A hot tub? A conservatory? The holiday you’ve been dreaming of, while you’ve been confined to your own postcode for the past few months? You can afford to splurge, with your considerable stamp duty savings. Or you could put down a larger-than-planned deposit on your new home, to reduce your monthly mortgage payments.

Has there ever been a better time to turn your dreams of a house move into reality? We suggest the best place to start, is a visit to any of our developments, to look at our fabulous selection of 2, 3, 4 and 5 bedroom homes.


Because with a Seddon home, you won’t just be saving on stamp duty – you’ll also be gaining a whole host of extras, which we include in the asking price! Quality, rigid built, fitted kitchens with top name appliances, luxury en suites with rainfall showers, energy saving glazing and insulation, turfed and fenced rear gardens… We include them all in every single Seddon home.

We add value in other areas too – with larger plots, cleverly designed layouts and extra-spacious rooms. We call it the Seddon difference – and we’d like you to experience it for yourself. All our developments and show homes are available to view by appointment. And to ensure your safety when you visit, we’ve introduced enhanced cleaning and protective measures at all our sites.

And if you fall in love with one of our Seddon homes – and we fully expect you will – we have lots of buying methods to help smooth your move, including Help to Buy. Remember, Help to Buy in its current format is only available on new homes built by 28th February 2021.help2move logo

Moving now has never made more sense! Contact our Sales Advisors to make an appointment to look round our new homes.
