CITY VIEWS: SHOULD THE STATE BE SUPPORTING HOUSE-BUYERS?

DAVID CALVERT | MIZUHO
“I think that the government should be more involved with planning and making land available, so that these people can build their own homes rather than going back to sub-prime loans.”

LIAM DUNFORD | SAVILLS
“There are too many international problems relating to bank lending. I think that the UK economy is intrinsically linked to house prices and mortgages, so lending should definitely be more available to first time buyers and to people moving.”

ZLATAN KRKIC | BLOOMBERG
“Yes, I think we need the government’s help. The market itself is not going to be sorted without its help. I think there needs to be a stimulus that will help first time buyers get on to the property ladder.”
