Brunsdens Budget Blog

Budgets are always controversial depending on whether you are a loser or winner personally from the results.

This year’s budget is fairly neutral from a property perspective – unless you are buying a house at over £2M in which case the Stamp Duty increase to 7% will be unwelcome.

Few would argue that our current planning regime is a confusing mess.  It remains to be seen whether Government plans to reduce planning guidance from 1,000 to 50 pages and introduce “prescription in favour of sustainable development” will have positive effects.

Praise indeed……

Things do not always go according to plan in life so it is always nice to receive some unsolicited praise, this from someone who recently bought through us:

“Brunsdens were the only estate agents we saw who seemed to really listen to what we were actually looking for and within 2 days they found us the perfect house.  Brunsdens went out of their way to help and is clearly a family run business by people who are part of the community and recognise that you will be joining that community”.
