We held a 'Stamp Out Stamp Duty' street stall in Beverley in September and we got a great response from local people. We were in Beverley again yesterday promoting the campaign and once again the response was positive.
Half of buyers in the East Riding are already paying an average £1,600 in Stamp Duty, and this is set to rise to two-thirds by 2017 paying an average of £2,200. This ever increasing burden is making it difficult for local people to get on the property ladder and also difficult for those with growing families who are looking to buy a larger home.
If you haven't done so already, please write to your MP. It only takes a minute and makes a real difference.
