Not Quite The End For Stamp Duty Relief…

Changes to the Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) rules and Multiple Dwellings  relief - shaikhandcoaccountants

The stamp duty tax holiday, which was introduced last year by Chancellor Rishi Sunak to stimulate the property market during the pandemic, will end in its current form today [30 June 2021].

However, the chancellor has provided an extension with a reduced threshold of £250,000 until 30 September 2021 – down from £500,000.

This means that anyone completing on the sale of a main residence costing up to £250,000 will not pay any stamp duty.  Properties exceeding £250,000 are only taxed on the value exceeding that threshold.

Take advantage of the saving before it’s too late and get in touch with our sales team today on 020 8652 9854.

Planning Permission Submitted for Morris House, 2 Bensham Lane, Croydon


An application for full planning permission has now been submitted to the London Borough of Croydon for our site at Morris House, 2 Bensham Lane, Croydon.

The Site is triangular in shape and covers an area of approximately 0.1ha.  It is currently occupied by a single storey bathroom retail store and a heating/plumber’s merchants.

The existing buildings on the Site have reached the end of their lifespan.  It is considered that a redevelopment of the Site provides the best prospects of securing long-term employment use at the Site alongside new modern residential homes.

Planning permission is being sought for the demolition of the existing buildings and erection of 60 new homes, commercial floorspace (Use Class E, F.1 and F.2), and associated landscaping, access, car, and cycle parking.

We hope to have a decision from the London Borough of Croydon in May 2021.
