Stamp duty freeze: 9 of the most popular houses on the market right now in Pontefract, Castleford and the Five Towns as stamp duty holiday extended to June
If lockdown has left you desperate for more space, or the extension of the stamp duty holiday has encouraged you to think about moving, this is the list for you. These are nine of the most popular houses on the market in Pontefract and Castleford right now.
Chancellor Rishi Sunak yesterday confirmed that the stamp duty holiday has been extended for another three months, meaning people in Wakefield and the Five Towns will pay no property purchase tax on the first £500,000 of sales until the end of June. After that, the stamp duty threshold will be set at £250,000, double its normal rate, until the end of September.
This means that current and potential homeowners in Wakefield and the Five Towns could stand to save thousands in fees if they complete on a purchase in the next few months.
So whether you're looking for your next family home, or just hoping for some property inspiration, this is the list for you. These are nine of the most popular homes currently on the market in Pontefract and Castleford, according to Zoopla, with options for every budget.
