Stamp duty pressure piles up on Darling

Heat turned up on Chancellor again as housing market representative body makes new plea for Darling to set out his stall on stamp duty

The UK’s largest professional body for estate agents has piled more pressure
on the Chancellor to clear up the uncertainty surrounding stamp duty.

The National Association of Estate Agents made fresh calls for Alistair
Darling to provide some clarity on the issue after he refused to confirm whether
the
Treasury
had plans in place to defer the payments for first-time buyers.

Peter Bolton King, chief executive of the NAEA, said: ‘I understandably have
been taking a plethora of concerned calls from members, some of whom are already
starting to feel the impact this comment has had on ready-and-waiting
purchasers,’ the FT reported.
