- Property on market for "offers in region of £1,010,000"
- Negotiate a sale price of £999,999
- Separately agree to purchase fixtures and fitting from the vendor in a private sale for £10,000.
UPDATE: I was under the impression stamp duty on less than a million was 1% (impression given by radio on way to work) but it seems it is 4%. Mea culpa. General point stands though.
