Man­sion tax comes un­der at­tack

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

AN es­tate agent has branded the stamp duty in­crease on homes of more than £1m as “un­fair and outrageous”.

Andrew Win­ter, a Blun­dells part­ner who spe­cialises in the com­pany’s Fine and Coun­try sec­tion, is uhappy about the five per cent “man­sion tax” that be­gins on April 6.

The Sh­effield-based part­ner adds: “A £50,000 tax just for mov­ing house is ridicu­lous. Of­ten these are not man­sions but the homes of mil­lions of mid­dle class work­ing fam­i­lies in some re­gions.”
