There’s no denying the fact that property moves can be stressful. Uprooting your life can be taxing on both an emotional and a practical level. Of course, it can also be financially problematic.
However, it’s now easier than ever to take advantage of high quality and affordable removal services. Even if you need additional help, such as piano removal, you won’t find this process difficult.
Property market on the up
Meanwhile, there are signs that the UK’s property market may be improving, meaning now may be a good time to sell up and move on. Recently, the Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML) predicted that 2013 would be more positive and stable.
It noted that the number of loans advanced to first-time buyers in October returned to levels similar to those witnessed during the summer following a dip in September. Meanwhile, lending to home movers also increased, which contributed to a jump in house purchase lending.
During October, a total of 20,000 loans were advanced to first-time buyers. This was up by 14 per cent compared with the previous month and was a rise of 19 per cent compared with October 2011. In total, £2.5 billion was lent to these buyers.
Meanwhile, lending to home movers, including those who may have needed removals companies in Romford, went up by 13 per cent in October compared with September. During the month, a total of 29,400 loans were advanced with a combined value of £4.8 billion.
Commenting on the figures, CML director general Paul Smee said: “More positive figures in October, after a slow September, suggest that the underlying trend in house purchase lending of modest year-on-year growth will continue. However, usual seasonal factors may act as a counter to lending levels in the coming months. An up-tick in remortgage lending may be an early sign of a small positive impact of the Funding for Lending scheme, but it’s still too soon to evaluate the effects of the scheme.
“If the incremental improvements in house purchase lending that we are currently seeing persist as we expect them to, then next year should feel a more stable and positive year in the housing and mortgage markets.”
