Can we avoid paying for stamp duty tax?

How early do you need to instruct a conveyancer to handle our transaction?


Whether buying or selling, the faster you instruct the better. The legal work can then start very early in the process. Some authors suggest waiting before instruction until the offer is accepted, but opting to delay can jeopardise your sale or purchase.
