We welcome the news of 879 more families in Ipswich using Conservative stamp duty cut and Help to Buy to get a foot on the housing ladder.
655 properties have been bought using the Help To Buy Isa and 224 properties bought using the Help To Buy Equity Loan, in Ipswich, enabling these hundreds of families being able to realise their dream of home ownership thanks to the government’s help to buy schemes, new figures out on 30 April 2019 show.
Across the country, in more good news for first-time buyers, 288,300 people have been able to achieve their dream of ownership thanks to our stamp duty reforms, new statistics show. First time buyers have saved £680 million following changes announced by the Chancellor in the Budget 2017. The reforms mean 8 out 10 first time buyers now pay no stamp duty at all – benefitting almost all first-time buyers and providing the security that comes with a home.
It is the Conservatives that are helping first-time buyers in Ipswich by cutting stamp duty so more young people get the keys for their first home.
Home ownership is no longer a pipe dream for the few as these figures show and it’s proof that the Conservatives are helping more people to get on the housing ladder and have a safe and secure home.
Vote for your Conservative candidate today as we are the party that is determined to give people a home of their own, and ensure that local people have the enhanced right to access local social housing.
