Budget brings welcome news for house builders and homebuyers alike

Commenting on today's Budget, NHBC Chief Executive Mike Quinton said:

"The Chancellor has today given a welcome shot in the arm for the UK's housebuilding industry.

"We warmly welcome the expansion of measures for people who want to buy their own homes. This will help boost the housing market and provide vital support for the construction industry.

"Builders up and down the country have been working hard to build high quality homes while operating in tough economic times. Housebuilding fell 9% in 2012 compared to the previous year. It is therefore great news that housing has been the centre piece of this Budget.

"This is a positive step for homebuilders and homeowners alike."
