UK’s Housing Market

“Housing and mortgage markets have re-accelerated since mid-2015 (…) However, the recent acceleration in housing markets could partly be a temporary response to tax changes (…) Macroprudential policies will need to be tightened later this year if the acceleration does not prove temporary (…) The buy-to-let (BTL) segment, which has grown rapidly in recent years, needs to be put on an equal regulatory footing with the owner-occupied segment (…) Efforts should also continue to address supply constraints (…)”, says the IMF’s latest report on the United Kingdom.
