House buyers prioritise energy efficiency when looking for a new home

A growing number of property buyers are now prioritising energy efficient features when looking for a new home, as the energy crisis concerns grow.  According to the research undertaken by the Home Builders Federation (HBF),  house hunters have become increasingly interested in sustainability, leading them to look for energy-efficient homes that offer green features.

The study has revealed the extent to which energy efficiency is now guiding the way we are now making home-moving decisions.  Around three in four respondents – 73% – to the HBF’s recent survey stated that they are worried about the energy performance of their current home, with almost a quarter – 24% – saying energy efficiency will be ‘crucial’ to their next home move.  Being ‘eco-friendly’ and ‘having a good EPC rating’ are now the second and third most desirable features in a new home, behind outdoor space, the study found.

We are committed to making our homes and developments more sustainable and lessen our impact on the environment.  We know that people want to live more sustainably and to reduce their carbon footprint.  With rising energy bills, we want to make it as easy as possible for our customers to do just that.

There is of course more we can do and we will continually strive to build the best sustainable homes possible.

Not Quite The End For Stamp Duty Relief…

Changes to the Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) rules and Multiple Dwellings  relief - shaikhandcoaccountants

The stamp duty tax holiday, which was introduced last year by Chancellor Rishi Sunak to stimulate the property market during the pandemic, will end in its current form today [30 June 2021].

However, the chancellor has provided an extension with a reduced threshold of £250,000 until 30 September 2021 – down from £500,000.

This means that anyone completing on the sale of a main residence costing up to £250,000 will not pay any stamp duty.  Properties exceeding £250,000 are only taxed on the value exceeding that threshold.

Take advantage of the saving before it’s too late and get in touch with our sales team today on 020 8652 9854.
