Chances of Stamp Duty Holiday post lockdown?

Wanted to get some thoughts around this board.

  1. There has been some publicity around stamp duty holidays as the lockdown eases in the UK. We think this will be a great incentive especially since the economy will be slow to bounce back. How likely do you think The stamp duty holiday is?

  2. Our current BTL transaction is due to exchange soon but we are delaying this in line with government advice but out mortgage offer will expire in 2 months time so do we complete or wait in anticipation for a stamp duty holiday?

Many thanks

I would not bank on it but anything can happen

I doubt very much that any stamp duty holiday would be extended to BTL transactions.
Don’t lose a sale purely because of it would be my advice.
