House hunters should be looking to secure a new home at a bargain price before house values start to rise and encourage other would-be buyers back into the property market.

The ELPG group of leading property solicitors says that, as the property market will be the first area to recover from the effects of the recession, house buyers have a limited time to purchase a home at a knock down value and face less competition for properties.

The group, which consists of Warners, Neilsons, Drummond Miller, Leslie Deans & Co and the Lints Partnership, highlights that the property market has historically been the first area to recover during previous recessions in the UK.

Burl Cain

Burl Cain

A talk by acclaimed US warden Burl Cain to Scottish business leaders has been cancelled after heated protests were made to event organisers, Winning Entrepreneurs.

Burl Cain, warden of Louisiana State Penitentiary – nicknamed ‘Angola’ –  was due to address members of the Winning Entrepreneurs business network in Edinburgh on Monday night at the Prestonfield House Hotel.

However, the event has been cancelled after a series of “aggressive” calls were made to Winning Entrepreneurs, while a flurry of protest e-mails were also sent to the organisers – around the treatment of the so-called ‘Angola 3’, prisoners.

Winning Entrepreneurs Founder Belinda Roberts said: “We’re very disappointed that this event has had to be cancelled – especially as Warden Cain was speaking about leadership, not the US penal system. However, we have to put the safety of the warden, our members and the hotel staff ahead of any other concerns.

Warners' Estate Agency Partner Scott Brown

The Bank of England’s decision to cut the base interest rate to an all-time low of 1.5 per cent could help encourage buyers back into the property market, according to one of Scotland’s leading solicitor estate agents.

 

Scott Brown, estate agency partner at Warners, says that the unprecedented move could stimulate activity on the property chain, as buyers start to realise that the banks will not pass further rate cuts to their customers.

 

He said: “Any move to re-stimulate the economy is to be welcomed and this latest cut in interest rates is a very positive step. Even if the banks do not pass this rate on fully to their customers, I think it will still have a knock-on effect on the housing market.

 

“There are some people who have been waiting for interest rates to level out before they make a purchase and this could encourage them to finally take that step. If, as is expected, the banks do not pass the full rate cut on, then it will be clear that these lenders’ interest rates will not go any lower than they are at the moment – and therefore borrowers will not get a better deal.

 

“Of course, what we now need to happen is for banks to start lending more to borrowers, which will help encourage people to purchase a home. Once this happens, it should help to stimulate the housing market and, ultimately, the rest of the economy.”

Scott Brown - Estate Agency Partner with Warners

Edinburgh’s leading solicitor estate agent has welcomed the decision by the Bank of England to cut the base interest rate by 1% and has claimed the move could help encourage first-time buyers into the property market.

Scott Brown, Estate Agency Partner with Warners, said: “This decision may look like a dramatic move – particularly as it follows last month’s 1.5% cut – but it is welcome news for the property market. It shows that the Bank of England is not afraid to tackle the current economic problems head on, which is very encouraging.

“Provided the base-rate reduction is passed on to customers through mortgage lenders, this move could help encourage first-time buyers to make their first step on the property ladder. At the moment, there are plenty of would-be purchasers out there who have been waiting for something like this to spark them into buying a home.

“We have been suffering from a lack of confidence for many months, which has seen the number of property sales drop across the whole of the UK. The Bank’s decision to cut rates by 1.5% last month showed that they were serious about tackling this issue and this latest cut will bring even more welcome relief for borrowers and act as an incentive for new buyers to enter the market.”
