Ochresoft welcomes Chancellor’s stamp duty announcement

Rob Gurney, managing director of Ochresoft – the legal workflow software specialist for conveyancing and private client lawyers – has welcomed the Chancellor of the Exchequer’s Economic Statement, which has included a holiday for Stamp Duty Land Tax for purchases up to £500,000 until March 2021.

“Conveyancing professionals are likely to see an immediate bounce in activities as buyers and sellers rush to catch the financial incentive that comes through the Stamp Duty holiday, for transactions up to £500,000.  Since the market re-opened in May, we have seen record-levels of new transactions on our Intelliworks case management system, however the news today should give it a significant additional boost.

“Intelliworks has already been updated to reflect the changes announced today by the Chancellor, and will continue to support property lawyers in ensuring every transaction is handled efficiently and compliantly.”
