The Society of Chartered Surveyors Ireland has said the ‘Help to Buy’ scheme announced in Budget 2017 will have very little impact on the housing crisis because supply is the problem, not demand.
Claire Solon, the President of the SCSI said the Government should have focused on supply measures as they would have a much greater impact on the crisis, help stabilise house prices and offer a better return to the taxpayer.
“In our view, the Government should have been focussing on initiatives to make development viable, like reducing VAT on affordable housing, making public land available for affordable housing schemes and providing finance to help kick-start building on sites around the country, with all the employment and tax benefits that this would bring.”
