UK 2021 Budget – First time buyers have a chance to move out of renting
11 Mar 2021
Government support for an extension of the Coronavirus Job Support Scheme to September 2021 and UK-wide Self Employment Income Support scheme may switch first time buyers to consider buying rather than renting their next property. Other incentives include an extension to cut in Stamp Duty until September will support the housing market and protect and create jobs. A new mortgage guarantee scheme will enable all UK homebuyers secure a mortgage up to £600,000 with a 5% deposit*.
This will allow the property market to continue to seam ahead, with property sales remaining strong, Surveyors busy undertaking Building Surveys and Valuations. When the effects of the Pandemic became clear in March 2020, many professionals in the property market would never have expected growth in the UK property, more the reverse.
