CKD Galbraith Welcomes Today's 'Help To Buy' Budget Announcement

Bob Cherry, partner at CKD Galbraith, has welcomed today's 'Help to Buy' budget announcement.

Bob Cherry said: "Today's help to buy' equity loan and mortgage guarantee scheme is a great boost for the Scottish property market allowing existing home-owners as well as first-time buyers to progress in the property market or get their first foot on the ladder. 

"The scheme supports house purchases, new build or existing properties, up to a maximum of 600,000 over a period of three years which should greatly enhance investment in the Scottish property market. As a firm we expect to see an active market across Scotland as we enter the main Spring selling season and today's announcement is very much welcomed and hopefully will generate an increase in housing market activity."
