Investment News – Brett’s 2009 Property News Budget Special

Investment News – Brett’s Budget special

Last week’s Budget affects you as a property investor, did you read it? If you have, well done! Frankly though I’d be surprised if you had, after all, it’s 269 pages long.

I know this because I read it so I could bring you a summary of how it affects you and your property portfolio. That’s the kind of generous guy I am.

Don’t worry, though  I won’t bog you down with every minute and frankly insignificant detail. Instead, we’ll be looking at the bigger picture.

I’ll give you a simple framework to understand how the government manages its money so you can look behind the numbers and make your own decisions. And as a fellow property investor I’ll focus your attention on the details that are aimed at us like Stamp Duty and Shared Equity Mortgage Schemes (which I’ll also explain if you’d not heard of them before).

Finally, I’ll show you why the recession has had a huge role in shaping this budget and give you the scoop on what you can do as an employee, employer or investor to overcome the economic slump.

As always, if you have any questions about the Budget or any other property news give the team a call on +44 (0)207 923 6100.

Live with passion,
Brett Alegre-Wood
