Duty abol­ished by Miller

The Herald - Scotland's Homes - - Welcome Home -

MILLER HOMES is en­sur­ing that first­time buy­ers are not the only ones to ben­e­fit from Chan­cel­lor Alis­tair Dar­ling’s Bud­get, as the UK’s largest in­de­pen­dent house­builder is abol­ish­ing stamp duty across all its cur­rent de­vel­op­ments in Scot­land (with the ex­cep­tion of Graysmill Gait, Craiglock­hart) over the next month.

Anne Marie Brit­ton, sales di­rec­tor for Miller Homes in Scot­land, said: “We wel­come the stamp duty ex­emp­tion for first­time buy­ers on prop­er­ties val­ued un­der the £250,000 thresh­old. This is un­doubt­edly go­ing to pro­vide con­sid­er­able sup­port. How­ever, the dif­fi­cul­ties of the cur­rent eco­nomic cli­mate af­fect us all. There­fore, we felt that all Miller Homes’ buy­ers should be given the op­por­tu­nity to take ad­van­tage of this propo­si­tion.”

Whether pur­chasers are try­ing to se­cure a one-bed­room apart­ment un­der the thresh­old or a £ 300,000 de­tached villa, this cam­paign will en­able a widerange of buy­ers to make stamp duty sav­ings in ex­cess of £9000 on prop­er­ties re­served be­fore May 9.
