Ahead of the Budget statement due on Wednesday 19 March, the Chancellor George Osborne is in the news and so are the popular property hashtags such a:s “Help to Buy”, “building the country”, ”need for more property”, “ city re-developments”, “new homes” plus a newly coined term “garden cities”.
The Chancellor intends to set up an urban development corporation to kick-start a new garden city at Ebbsfleet in the Thames estuary near Gravesend which will see 15,000 new properties built. Ebbsfleet is a stopping point on the high-speed line (HS1) from St Pancras to France. Plans for a new town emerged in 1996, 2007 and as recently as 2012, when the government and local councils agreed with the developer, Land Securities, to build 22,000 houses.
The Chancellor confirmed that the government would extend the Help to Buy scheme for the new-built homes for the rest of the decade. Getting Britain building is the way to boost economic stability and resilience - said the Chancellor during his BBC Andrew Marr Show interview.

The UK house prices are up 7.9% compared with a year ago according to the latest report from Halifax. This is the strongest annual increase since October 2009.
Yet again, the report has triggered concerns and warnings from business industry analysts confirming the wide spread “property bubble” fear. Also, many more seem to agree that the “By to Let” has fuelled the demand and pushed the prices up and further out of people’s reach.
The situation is getting more dangerous as housing supply is failing to meet demand notably in the London and south east.

The British Bankers Association's report about home loans hit the headlines yesterday stating that the British banks last month approved the highest monthly level of mortgage landing since September 2007.

Compared with January 2013, the number of mortgage approvals made to home buyers last month was 57% higher. Meanwhile, 22,972 approvals worth £3.6 billion were granted for re-mortgaging which is 51% increase compared with the same month last year.
At the end of this uplifting mortgage news it’s worth mentioning that the new business lending in the UK, according to the British Banker’s Association (BBA), continues to fall.

Ed Miliband’s comment published yesterday in the Evening Standard warns that “London’s position as a global business capital is in danger unless hundreds of thousands of new homes are built”.
The Labour leader highlights the lack of affordable flats and houses in the Capital which “are vital to ensure firms have the young professionals and skilled workers they need to expand”.
Action against property firms sitting on prime land as well as reduction of empty homes owned by absentee foreign investors are both part of his plan aiming to tackle the current housebuilding crisis.

Well behind Kentish Town Road is this quiet leafy backwater, known as the Bartholomew Estate Conservation Area. A remarkably compact and well preserved Victorian residential area of Kentish Town where little has changed over the last 150 years. The area remained as farmland right up until the mid 19th century, when development was undertaken by three landlords: Christ Church College Oxford, Dartmouth Family Estate and St Bartholomew Hospital. Street names to watch out for properties are: Patshull Road, Bartholomew Road, Gaisford Street, Caversham Road, Lawford Road and Bartholomew Villas.
