First Time Buyers made the most of the Stamp Duty exemption pushing property sales to their highest level in four months in February.

The National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA) market report showed an increase in the number of sales across the UK, with an average of seven sales per branch for the month, up from six in January and the highest since eight sales a month in October 2011.
