The Housing White Paper 2017
Our real estate team has examined the key considerations for the marketing in light of the UK's first Housing White Paper in 20 years.
The Government’s acknowledgement that the housing market is broken and that we need concerted action from all involved if we are going to fix it, is welcome. The tone of the White Paper is positive and the encouragement offered to the sector has been well received.
The scale of the challenge is huge and the White Paper makes no bones about that. We need a considerable increase in supply across all tenures. The change of emphasis from a single minded pursuit of home ownership options to something more flexible was expected and reflects earlier comments from Ministers and last year’s Autumn statement.
