Any solicitors on here?
The chancellor has just announced that the stamp duty threshold for first time buyers will rise to Ł250,000 from midnight tonight. Great news I think, however I have already exchanged contracts so I don't know if that means I will still have to pay or not.
I've been on the phone to the solicitors and as they haven't had the info passed to them yet they don't know if I'll have to pay or not. The girl suspects that I will though.
Anyone know? Or is there anyone who was midway through a purchase when the threshold was raised last year?
