Can you confirm how I defer paying stamp duty land tax?
SDLT is usually payable for home purchases sold for more than one hundred and twenty-five thousand pounds. Stamp duty reduction is not recommended for purchases in Witney, because these schemes are often uneconomical and , if a scheme is challenged, you can be fined up to 100% of the amount owed, in additional to the tax itself.
Where do I establish if the designated conservation area is in a poor state?
Following a campaign, English Heritage keep a list about the state of repair of conservation areas in Witney and throughout England in addition to the risk of deterioration or improvement. Local Witney conservation areas are designated by the local West Oxfordshire planning authority, who manage the state of the area including things like ugly shop fronts, the painting of houses and building materials used.
Is there a benefit to going to auction over a standard estate agent sale?
The majority of homes sold via an estate agent will be in a reasonable condition and usually modernised, whereas auction properties will often require a lot of modernisation or structural work before it can be lived in. That’s not to say you can’t use either for your sale, of course, irrespective of the state of the property.
