I have spoken to the Land Registry and they have confirmed that the extension is currently agreed until the end of September, but there is a good chance this will be extended further, but no guarantee's. Constructors are pushing for an extension.

Hi Hayran

Please god they extend it to after Christmas gives me more time to get the money together, but its scary if I panic and borrow the money and then they extend it, I will be worse off, just had my final figure and its way more than what I expected. Not sure how they got to that figure, no one seems to know whether its 5% of the contract price or off the build.

Any info would help

Hi Sheila, they should be calculating the taxes due on the contract price and you should insist on this. You should also ask for a complete breakdown of all costs and how calculated to ensure you are not paying more than you have to!

If you give me a nudge a week or so before the end of September, I will contact the Land Registry again to see if the tax discounts have been extended beyond the end of September.

Hope this helps.

Hayran

Hello Hayran

I have asked them for a breakdown twice but they dont come back to me, thanks for letting me know whether its the Contract or the build they calculate the taxes from. I was hoping it was the build as I paid 20,000 more than the others in my apts as mine is classed as a 2nd time buyer.

Many thanks again I will drop you a line a couple of weeks prior to the end of September by then you might have some more news.

Many thanks again
