Autumn Highs – A plot conveyancing career is waiting for you
The housing sector is continuing to soar and this rise has been further heightened by the recent ‘Autumn Statement’.
Every new home which is built is significantly aiding and improving the lives of managing families and generating an additional £106,000 in to the UK economy! It is even improving employment with each new home effectively creating 2 new full time jobs. Excellent work from what seems a ‘just a new development’. The government have a set target of providing one million homes by 2020 and the high profile development housing associations are playing a pivotal role in delivering this along side ongoing support by the Chancellor and the Prime Minister in helping more people take that leap into home ownership.

Currently you can benefit from support such as ‘help to buy, ‘rent to buy’, shared ownership and stair-casing funding options to get your foot firmly on the ladder. More commitment has been pledged, creating yet more confidence in the housing sector as an additional £1.4 billion has been set aside from the ‘Autumn Statement’ to help with the development of 40,000 further homes which are expected to have a rent – to – buy model. There are many ways in which the government will provide funding access to you and have numerous products which are aimed to support your transition from renting your property to homeownership. These new additions are hoped to stabilise the ‘post referendum’ housing market and ensure affordable housing is available to everyone regardless of their housing affordability.
The Autumn Statement has been welcomed by high profile development chief executives and housing association directors, the chief executive of ‘Inspired homes’ Martin Skinner commented; “Real steps are needed to address the longstanding shortage of homes in the UK and the Government has now taken measures to inject some confidence into the industry in order to support the next generation of homeowners. It is vitally important that these new measures quickly filter to homebuilders so we can begin work.” (http://www.propertyweek.com/news/autumn-statement-the-five-key-announcements/5086417.article)
