First time buyers - you have never had it so good!

Well we weren’t expecting that. Yesterday’s announcement by the chancellor of the exchequer that stamp duty will be axed for first time buyers purchasing properties under £250k is a major boost to first time buyers and the house building industry.
Miller Homes have long championed the cause of first time buyers and have campaigned for increased help for those who dream of owning their own home. With yesterday’s announcement we now have in place for first time buyers in the UK the most comprehensive programme designed to help people onto the housing ladder ever to be implemented in this country.
The combination of Government help in the form of the stamp duty cut and home buy direct alongside house builder schemes such as Miller Homes’ shared equity scheme Mi Way and Deposit Match form a robust support programme for first time buyers the like of which we have never seen before.
I would urge all first time buyers who have been reluctant to enter the market to take advantage of the opportunities now available.
