Celebs in the UK struggle to sell their homes
Picture: Ricky Gervais House in London
The UK's Daily Mail Show Biz journalist Annabel Venning reports that British stars such as Ricky Gervais and Jamie Oliver are struggling to sell their huge expensive mansions. In the UK the government increased stamp duty for high-end houses, which could add more than a million to the price in some cases. For example houses over £1.5 million now attract stamp duty tax at rate of 12 per cent.
The changes mean that if you buy a house for £11 million, you’ll pay £1.2 million in stamp duty, or £1.5 million if it’s your second home.
According to an independent buying agent Henry Pryor: ‘The top end of the market has been severely undermined by the Government’s actions over the past 18 months. It means that properties over £1 million suffer from “transaction friction” — they are harder to sell than they were.
