Gordon Brown has doubled the threshold for stamp duty taxes from £60,000 to £120,00.
The increase in the threshold, which will come into effect tomorrow, exceeded expectations that Brown would only increase the stamp duty threshold to £100,000.
The move will make house purchases more affordable for first-time buyers.
