    The tax payer has to subsidise the people who have over borrowed to keep estate agents in jobs. Also temporary relief. What happens when it disappears?

  • new user – they’re all at it, it’s in the Handbook. Rule 1 : Deny there’s a problem. Say it’s a mixed picture. Rule 2 : Ask for help…not because there’s a problem but because things are temporarily in need of…er, fine-tuning.

    When will idiots like this get real and fully appreciate this isnt about stamp duty or silly tax breaks.
    Property for first time buyers is totally over priced and quite a stupid committment to make.

    Please help us – we estate agents are feeling the pinch.

    Who cares?

    Lets see.

    If I was to buy the average property in London I would be paying over 10k in stamp duty. A lot BUT

    …and there was no shortage..the areas I am looking in are dominated by BTL
