Redrow has announced it is holding a stamp duty holiday event across its active schemes this weekend, allowing potential home buyers the chance to learn more about the changes to stamp duty which were implemented in July.
Throughout the weekend, Redrow said that sales consultants would be on hand to explain the temporary changes exempting homes priced up to £500,000 from the tax which would save home buyers up to £15,000 on their purchase.
The housebuilder referred to Rightmove research showing the impact of stamp duty relief – nine out of ten people who buy a home before the end of March will pay no stamp duty, according to the analysis.
And Redrow’s own research reveals the effects of lockdown on people’s attitudes towards their home. When asked about their current property, 40% of UK adults said that spending more time at home had changed their level of satisfaction with it. And a quarter of future home movers are rethinking what they want from their next home.
James Holmear, Redrow’s group sales director, said: “Through our stamp duty awareness weekend on 26th and 27th September, we will provide a wealth of information for all potential buyers, whether they are prospective first-time buyers, next-steppers on the property ladder, or those looking to rightsize to a ready-to-go new home that better suits their lifestyle.
“There is a significant opportunity available to those looking to purchase before the stamp duty holiday period comes to an end in March 2021, whether that’s bolstering a deposit to purchase a more spacious property, or additional cash to tailor a new home with the ideal fixtures, décor and finishing touches.”
Precision People's recruitment specialist in the Construction and Building Products sector Natalie Chapman, who has over 13 year's experience within this field, welcomed the initiative.
"I think it's an excellent idea teaching potenitial buyers the advantages of the stamp duty holiday and can only help to boost the sector."

During the 2008 recession, the percentage of temporary and contracting workers went up to a whopping 55%. In a normal market, the average is about 25%. Hopefully, this situation will not last as long and most businesses will be able to bounce back pretty quickly post Covid.
Are you worried about hiring the wrong person in an uncertain economy? Hiring someone with the wrong skill set or maybe not the right culture fit, could cost your business thousands, and you don’t want to be making mistakes like that right now.
Have you and your team thought about hiring contractors or temporary staff? Maybe you haven't had much experience dealing with temporary, contracting or interims in the past or maybe you've had an unpleasant experience? Whatever your views, as UK businesses start to put their hiring plans together post pandemic - many will be turning to contigent staff as an option.
6 Reasons why hiring temporary, contracting or interim staff will help your business recover from Covid.
1. The jobs market is very different to what is was even 3 months ago. Have there been redundancies in your market or maybe with your competitors? There maybe skilled candidates on the market that didn't expect to find themselves there a few months ago.
This means there will be excellent candidates on the market, who have unfortunately been made redundant, that you previously had no access to because they were happy in their jobs. Why not take advantage of the market situation and hire these skilled people on a contracting basis to try them out?
When you hire a contractor you are in effect ‘trying before you buy’. This means if they don’t have the right skills or you discover they aren’t the right culture fit, you can simply and quickly let them go with zero risk to you.
2. You can hire someone quickly to hit the ground running - no lengthy interviews or on boarding and paperwork with HR. Many contractors and interims bring in a wealth of experience and knowledge from moving from business to business - it could be just what your company needs right now, bring in some expertise!
3. Maybe your business only needs someone for a short period of time, maybe to cover sickness, maternity or perhaps a project needs completing. Hiring a contractor or temporary person covers that position for as long as you need them. Helping to secure your clients as you complete deadlines.
4. Your cash flow is protected - we take care of NI, statutory sick pay, reducing your short-term costs. Hiring temporary or contracting staff means no HR responsibility, no fees to pay, no need to payroll, spreading the cost of hiring and reducing risk.
5. You only pay for the hours they work, which again reduces your costs.
6. Precision operates a 15 week ‘temporary to permanent’ programme where by the cost of hiring a candidate is spread out over 15 weeks - again reducing your costs.
If you’re company requires more senior- management, but you are reluctant in this present climate to hire someone permanently, then an interim is exactly what you need to help navigate during a crisis or during times where there is lack of management, we can also help with this.

Like most things, there is a right way and a wrong way to go about things. But, how do you find the RIGHT technical contractors? In this article, the top 5 business mistakes companies are continually making are revealed.
Choosing a recruiter that keeps calling you, thinking that they'll be able to offer you the right technical engineering contractors for your business. Just because they keep calling does not mean they are the right choice for you.
Hiring contractors that turn out not to have the correct skills for the job. How annoying and what a waste of your time. You've tried to train them and it's clear that they just haven't got the right skill set.
Hiring contractors that haven't been thoroughly referenced. Oh dear, more of your time wasted. The contractors staff you've been supplied with may turn out to be totally unsuitable.
Not having a thorough and smooth on boarding process when hiring technical contractors. Contractors will quickly get frustrated if your business has not thought a thorough and effective process which means they might be losing money.
Not comparing your daily rates to your competitors and the current market. Contractors are highly skilled and they are looking for contract rates that refelct this. Make sure your rates are competitive.
