Was looking through some property ads (as I get paid to do once in a while!) and I noticed that a 1 bed flat at £144,500 on Anerlery Road is being advertised as Stamp Duty Exempt. As the cut off is normally £120,000 either this ad is very wrong, or Anerley Road has now been classed as a deprived area. Does anyone know anymore?

Probably correct - a lot of the areas round here fall into 'disadvantaged areas' catagory which means anything up to £150k is stamp-duty exempt. It all seems a bit arbitary to me as some very nice roads are officially 'disadvantaged'.

When I was looking for a flat I looked at a few in Anerley. I was told that it had been classified as a deprived area and therefore exempt from stamp duty, this was about a year ago.

The areas are generally defined by Council Wards - a full list can be found at:
