Market update: July 2020

Back by popular demand, Rob & Rob have returned with a market update podcast!

Yes, we said goodbye to weekly updates BUT, we were inundated with requests to bring them back. So for now, we’ll be resurrecting them on a monthly basis so you can get your regular fix of the latest developments across the property sector.

Today they’re talking about the hot topic of the month: stamp duty. They’re covering the latest changes and what they mean for the property market now and in the long-term.

If you’re thinking ‘hang on – they’ve already covered this….’ – you’re right. They did recently cover it on this week’s episode of Ask Rob & Rob but today they’re delving deeper, and they’re also giving you their opinion on the latest market activity and of course, the rental market.

Trust us, if you’ve missed the Friday market updates, this is an episode you don’t want to miss!


In other news, it seems that not everyone is happy that the new stamp duty charges are applicable to everyone. The Shadow Housing Secretary says it’s a £1.3 billion bung for landlords. However they’ve not pointed out in the article that the 3% surcharge remains in place and where that tax increase came from in the first place.


This week’s Hub Extra is something of our very own and it’s sticking with the stamp duty topic. Ideally when you’re now looking at property prices you want to know how much you’ll be saving.

Well, we’ve put together an article that not only explains the stamp duty changes but there’s also a handy calculator in there too that you can use to work out just how much you’ll save on your next property purchase.


We’d love to hear what you think of this week’s Property Podcast over on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. You might even have a topic you’d like us to cover in the future – if so, pop us a message on social and we’ll see what we can do.
