BUSY NEW YEAR FOR THE MIDLAND HOUSING MARKET
Added on January 25th 2016

Estate agents predict a surge in sales ahead of stamp duty rise. MIDLAND estate agents are getting set for a busy start to 2016 – predicting a surge in Spring-time sales in the buy-to-let market ahead of changes to the levels of stamp duty. From April, buy-to-let landlords and people buying second homes will have to pay more in stamp duty; a 3% surcharge on each band. That means that for properties worth between £125,000 and £250,000, where the stamp duty is 2%, buy-to-let landlords will pay 5%. The move, announced by Chancellor George Osborne in the government’s Autumn Statement, together with reductions in tax relief for landlords, is... Read more

Surveyors Find More Defects
Added on May 19th 2014

DID YOU KNOW? Surveyors are finding more maintenance defects in homes In the Hunters Residential Survey Department we see a cross section of the housing market because we act for all the major UK lenders.

Given that the improvement in the housing market has followed a period of recession we are now finding that maintenance which normally would have been undertaken has, in some insta... Read more
