August's base rate rise, Bank of England governor Mark Carney's warnings of a potential property price plunge and general anxiety still lingering aroundBrexit, you could be forgiven for feeling negative about the current state of the property market.
But a quick look at the numbers will show there's hardly ever been a better time to be hunting for a mortgage - whether you're a first-time buyer, remortgaging, or looking to get into buy-to-let - rates have scarcely ever been lower.
Not only are rates dropping, lenders are also expanding their product ranges into areas that they previously might not have considered.

Homeowners need to start paying Stamp Duty from £125,000. Stamp Duty in Scotland is now referred to as the Land and Buildings Transaction Tax (LBTT) and is charged when you buy a home of more than £145,000.

This regeneration project now comprises 4 luxury apartments, administration facilities, a library, restaurant, bar, conservatory, snooker room and doctor/nurse facilities and serves as the social hub of the village.
