A Practical Guide to Stamp Duty and e-Conveyancing
The introduction of e-conveyancing represents the biggest change to stamp duty since its introduction in 1694. The concept of a digital signature and electronic deeds is entirely new and one that will revolutionise how stamp duty is levied. Everyone involved in stamp duty will be affected and see his or her working practices change, and in this new title, the author suggests the issues are more complex than the working committee originally envisaged. Patrick Cannon provides guidance to the new provisions creating paperless conveyancing for the sale of land and buildings, and using electronic signatures and digital land registration. As stamp duty is the fastest growing tax in terms of Government receipts and one that is receiving most legislative attention, this practical and jargon-free guide should prove useful for every solicitor, conveyancer, surveyor and estate agent in the country.
