Stamp duty research

Our research has revealed that Stamp Duty Land Tax is suffocating the housing market. A real change is needed.

In October 2017 we carried out research, in conjunction with the London School of Economics (LSE), looking at the effects of Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) on the housing market and the wider economy, and its impact on household behaviour.

Following that, in July 2018 we undertook some further research with LSE looking at the impact of SDLT. 

We believe the Government needs to urgently review and revise its approach to SDLT and re-think its housing policy. A real change is needed.
