Stamp duty holiday drives a surge in sales transactions

Recent data from Rightmove says there were 704,000 property sales going through in June, the highest for a decade

At the start of the year, this figure stood at 613,000 but with the stamp duty tax holiday frenzy, which ended on June 30th, it’s no surprise that this number has rocketed since then!

And for those looking to buy or sell a property up to £250,000, there’s still time to make potential savings of up to £2,500.
