Money Facts: Stamp Duty

ANORAK’S look at money news in the media

THE TELEGRAPH: “Home buyers in the South are paying more than three times as much stamp duty as those in the North of the country, new figures show.

“People buying a property in the South of the UK paid an average of £6,280 in stamp duty during 2006-07, while those in the North paid just £1,994 during the same period, according to online mortgage firm”


Anyone else think this is because homes in the south cost more than they do in the north?
