Description:

To support the move to zero-carbon homes, the UK government announced in the 2007 Budget that from 1 October 2007 all new homes meeting the zero carbon standard costing up to GBP 500 000 would pay no stamp duty, and that zero-carbon homes costing in excess of GBP 500 000 would receive a reduction in their stamp duty bill of GBP 15 000. The relief applied from 1 October 2007 to 30 September 2012.
