The 31st March Stamp Duty holiday deadline is fast approaching and we wanted to reassure you that we are doing everything we can to process all purchase cases as smoothly as possible.

In line with the deadline we will allow Solicitors to proceed with a no-search indemnity insurance policy in place. In addition, we have also increased resource to support our underwriting team and whilst we can’t guarantee that cases will complete before the deadline, we are working as quickly as possible to move your clients’ applications forward.

In order to assist us, we would ask that, if you have a case currently at the ‘pre-offer’ stage, you ensure all documents requested by our underwriters have been uploaded via our dedicated portal.

If you want to know what is outstanding on your case, you will also be able to see this from the case messaging service in the portal.

If you have any urgent queries regarding your on-going applications please contact your BDM or the Intermediary Sales Desk, however please do only contact us if absolutely necessary as we are currently experiencing high call volumes.
