In a bid to boost growth and to help house buyers, Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng has unveiled in today’s mini-budget a permanent and immediate reduction of Stamp Duty Land Tax by increasing the:

  • residential nil-rate threshold from £125,000 to £250,000;
  • nil-rate threshold for First Time Buyers’ Relief from £300,000 to £425,000, and
  • maximum amount that an individual can pay for a home while remaining eligible for First Time Buyers’ Relief, from £500,000 to £625,000.

The non-UK residents and second properties surcharges still remain in place. With rising house prices and base rates increasing, we watch with bated breath to see what impact this has on the NI market.
