Property news: Home removals soar by 50 percent as homeowners seek more space


Nick added that homeowners are looking for setups that will suit their new working situation. 

“They particularly want houses with home offices, maybe with a separate entrance – or to move close to their business operation so that they don’t have to use public transport.”

As well as hoping to find more space, it’s likely the changes in the market have sparked the demand too. 

While some moves were put on hold during the lockdown, causing pent-up demand, the government has also introduced new incentives to encourage the market activity. 

A new stamp duty holiday was announced, which will last until the end of March in 2021. 

The temporary change means homeowners could save thousands on their home if they complete before the deadline.
