Reverse Osborne’s stamp duty reforms

Katherine McCullough, Development Director at Merchant Land

I would like to see some attention given to reviewing what Osborne’s stamp duty reforms have achieved and ideally, to have them reversed in order to help stimulate the housing market at the top end. It would also be encouraging to hear discussion taking place around tax incentives to encourage down-sizing; not only to stimulate housing supply but to also benefit the downsizers themselves. Finally, a critical and honest conversation around Help to Buy schemes and whether they will be committed to in the mid to long term or brought to an end would be welcome.
