First-time buyer success
THE news that 180,500 households haveÂ benefited from the cut in stamp duty has been welcomed by Gosport MP Caroline Dinenage.
In the 2017 Autumn Budget, the Conservative government cut stamp duty toÂ help first-time buyers get on to the property ladder.
Since First Time Buyers Relief was introducedÂ 95 per centÂ of first-time buyers have benefited from the changes. First-time buyers have saved Â£426m.
Ms Dinenage said: '˜It's been difficult to see families in GosportÂ unable to own their own house, often spending their wages on extortionate rental properties. I'm delighted to hear the Help to Buy scheme hasÂ helped residents get the propertyÂ they deserve.'
