UK Home Buyers have saved a substantial amount of money since the introduction of the stamp duty land tax reforms. This has helped in particular to get the struggling first time buyer on the property ladder since they have significantly less to save in order to fund the fees for the purchase of their first home. This has led to greater movement up the ladder and a boost to the property market when it was starting to slow down in anticipation of the general election. Hopefully the Chancellor will leave things as they are in his next statement - we shall see !
