    Well folks, letís hope Scotland follows suit and scraps the LBTT for fist time buyers on the 14th (Scottish Budget)

    I am so hoping Nicola Sturgeon decides to listen and follow on from Ruthís blistering comments that the housing market has slowed down ever since it was introduced

    I messaged Nicola on Twitter but never had a response, not that I thought I would anyway

    Only the LBTT in Ireland, Wales and England has been scrapped

    I hope so but as the SNP love raising taxes I don't hold out much hope. Would save me nearly a grand if they did however.

    We have just purchased a new house but not completing till mid Feb

    This would be a blessing if they scrapped the LBTT straight away just like what Westminister did

    Would save us £1100

    I'm not due to conclude missives until mid January so i have my fingers tightly crossed Sturgeon and her ilk do the right thing and get in line with the rest of the country.

    Here here

    Although for first time buyers, there sure isn’t a lot of people in Scotland bothered about it on here ....which is worrying

    I wouldn't hold out much hope. SNP policy seems to be do the opposite of Westminster. If they do scrap it then no doubt will come with a sting in the tail such as a rise in the basic rate of income tax.
