It’s just over 6 months away, but in terms of the length of time it takes to sell a house, as well as buying a new place to live, the end of the stamp duty holiday is just around the corner.

With RightMove’s Little Blue Book showing that it takes on average between 157 and 167 to take a property from marketing to completion, and with only 161 days until the end of the Stamp Duty holiday, it’s more imperative than ever to get your property on the market right now.

Here at Open House, we work hard to ensure that the conveyancing process runs as fast and as smoothly as possible, however this has seen a national slow down across many conveyancing firms, due to the various aspects of the pandemic.

These reasons include a backlog from the initial lockdown period in processing transactions, as well as various property professionals, such as solicitors and surveyors, being affected by the virus directly or indirectly.

The attention and dedication that Open House provides when monitoring the progression of the conveyancing process, can ensure you can expect a marginally quicker outcome, so will be able to still benefit from the Stamp Duty holiday.

So if you’d like to put your property on the market and ensure to make the most of the fact that buyers will be eager to secure a property before the end of the Stamp Duty holiday, then get in touch now for a free no obligation valuation.
