Autumn Statement 23rd November

By Charles Everritt

Well the Autumn statement is due out on 23rd November and the whole country will be waiting on the news it will bring for the economy. More specifically, buyers sellers and their estate agents will be waiting with keen interest on news that Mr Hammond might possibly change SDLT which Mr Osbourne choose to change just before the last general election in a bid to stave off incessant discussion, partially by Labour of a " mansion tax"

We believe any sort of reversal or reduction in the upper end band will have a transformative effect on the market and will certainly create quite a shift in the level of buyers who are actively pursuing a purchase both here in Bath and in London and the home counties A general freeing up of the market will take place.
