STAMP DUTY ABOLISHED IMMEDIATELY for first time buyers!

If you haven’t already heard, first time buyers will NOT pay stamp duty up to £300,000 with immediate affect. We are still waiting on clarification if this applies to people who have already exchanged. This could save some first time buyers up to £5,000, which will certainly help people moving onto the property ladder.

As this will now bring more first time buyers out of the wood work it will increase demand at the lower end of the market place. The ripple effect of this will see demand for people to move up the property ladder, so larger family homes will also see the benefit.

This is great news to our local market and the UK property market as a whole, which is much needed due to the constant negative news stories surrounding the property market recently and Brexit causing uncertainty.

The other good news is funding for new builds will be supplemented by £44bn which should fuel a very positive housing market in 2018 and going forward.

If you would like any advice on how this may effect you directly please do not hesitate to contact me personally

The Heatons Christmas Festival

This coming weekend see’s one of the highlights of the Heatons calendar. On Saturday 25th November from 3pm to 7.30pm, Shaw Road will be awash with festive entertainment. There will be music, delicious food and drink and lots of gorgeous market stalls full of ideal gifts. A little elf friend tells me Father Christmas will be arriving on a special sleigh around 3pm. Around this time of year he’s very busy, so apparently he’s staying until 7.30pm, so this giving plenty of time for him to meet all the girls and boys.

This year 4HTA (Four Heatons Traders Association) has teamed up with the Rotary Lamplighters, Heaton Moor Markets and Fountain May. These hardworking organisations are guaranteed to provide plenty of festive entertainment throughout the afternoon.

Please leave the car at home – there really is no space for car parking anywhere near the event.

See you there!
