The prospect of owning a home by the sea is a tantalising one. With over 11,000 miles of coastline here in the UK, there are plenty of places to choose from.
You will find fabulous beaches, breath-taking views and clean fresh sea air. It is no wonder that so many choose a staycation over the summer months taking advantage of all that the seaside has to offer.
Now that the holiday season is sadly coming to an end, you may be tempted to buy a second home to keep those links and memories with your holiday destinations. It is currently a very good time to buy a second home. Prices for holiday homes are at present quite inexpensive and interest rates are at a historical low as well. Although stamp duty is payable at the surcharged rates on second properties, this is mitigated by the initial modest cost of the home.
We should also not forget that there are plenty of homes inland too. You will find farmhouses and cottages with panoramic views set in beautiful countryside to tempt you.
Holidays create lasting memories, so whether you are a surfer, stargazer or just like being by the sea, why not consider buying a second home. With over a hundred years of combined experience here at Blaser Mills, we are ideally placed to help out with your purchase and to answer any questions you may have about stamp duty tax on a second home. We can offer a breath of fresh air in the buying process and help make your dream of owning a holiday home a reality.
