Budget wish list from agents

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

MARK Hay­ward, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of the Na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of Es­tate Agents and Ian Pot­ter, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of the As­so­ci­a­tion of Let­ting Agents have is­sued a joint state­ment ahead of the 2014 Budget an­nounce­ment. In it they say: “A ma­jor theme for this year’s Budget needs to be the sup­ply of homes and more specif­i­cally, mo­bil­ity in the property mar­ket. The Govern­ment needs to ad­dress the re­stric­tions people face when find­ing a place to live.”

They also call on the Chan­cel­lor to “ad­dress the un­fair and hugely ex­pen­sive Stamp Duty slab struc­ture and to sup­port in­sti­tu­tional in­vest­ment in the pri­vate rented sec­tor by fully reg­u­lat­ing the in­dus­try.”
