Budget has a tonic for homebuyers

Good news in today’s Budget for home buyers.

As widely predicted, the cut in Stamp Duty has been extended, with the zero-rate threshold of £500,000 staying until the end of June, then being reduced to £250,000 until the end of September. The Stamp Duty threshold will only return to its pre-Covid-19 level of £125,000 from 1st October.

And in a second boost to the market, the Chancellor announced that the Government would provide a mortgage guarantee for people who could only afford a 5% deposit for their mortgage.

He said Lloyds, NatWest, Santander and HSBC have promised to have products available from next month.

If you are looking to buy your first home, now is as good a time as any, with interest rates low and today’s Budget measures in place.
