Latest figures from HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) show that the UK’s property market recorded its strongest month in 13 years in April, with a combination of pent-up demand and Stamp Duty saving fuelling a buoyant market.
Meanwhile, experts suggest that the market could continue to perform strongly beyond the end of the current Stamp Duty holiday.
Jon Cunliffe, Deputy Governor of the Bank of England, said: “One would expect the market to cool down when public support to the economy in general and housing market in particular.”
But he added that there “may also be some reasons to believe that the recent increase in demand for housing, and perhaps the composition of that demand, which has driven the UK market in recent months, reflects some more persistent drivers and that the market will not fall back to its pre-pandemic decade performance when the tax incentives have gone.”
Since July 2021, the stamp duty threshold has been reduced from £500,000 to £250,000. This valuable relief is set to stay until 30 September 2021, before reverting to its usual £125,000 level from 1 October 2021.
