The current Stamp Duty Holiday, has been extended to the end of June, then 0% taxation will be payable on main residences up to Β£250,000 until the end of September, offering buyers a saving up to Β£2,500.

A new mortgage guarantee scheme will enable existing homeowners and first-time buyers to access 95% mortgages for property costing up to Β£600,000. 9 in every 10 sales is below this figure.
