About this Episode

Stuart and Simon discuss a Covid-19 influenced viewing experience, stamp duty and the speed (or not) of completing a sale.

The chat this week includes:

  • Awkward property viewings.
  • Vendor vs agent viewing styles.
  • The additional stamp duty rate on your primary residence.
  • The stamp duty holiday rates (spreadsheet).
  • Another offer has been accepted (via a new agent).
  • Trying to complete by Christmas.
  • Average of 77 days for a "proceedable offer".
  • Average of 123 days for conveyancing.
  • Purchases missing the stamp duty holiday.
  • Mortgage delays, perhaps leading to sale failures.
  • A meaningless average.
