Stamp duty relief extended

Transfers of housing taking place after 21 March will benefit from the new clause, tabled for the report stage of the Finance Bill. This will apply whether or not the social landlords concerned are constituted as charities.

Bringing forward the extension of the stamp duty relief to the earliest possible date after the Budget announcement will help local authorities making transfers between 22 March and the day the Finance Bill receives Royal Assent.
