Some property experts expect property prices to rise due to a combination of fiscal stimulus (money printing and government borrowing), stamp duty holiday extension, historically low interest rates and the return of a 95% mortgage free-for-all!

Property investors should look to new relaxed planning rules being introduced, which will make it easier to convert and repurpose commercial buildings.

A word of caution.

Printing money on a scale not seen since the Second World War could lead to inflated asset prices (prices of stocks and shares, commodities, property have already risen sharply), higher inflation and higher interest rates. If this happens, the rate on mortgages will rise and this could cause serious financial issues for those borrowers with large mortgages.
