Shelter publication driven by HATC model

Thursday, October 17th, 2013

This week, Shelter published their short report “At Any Cost? – The case for stable house prices in England “. The report draws on sophisticated modelling by HATC of the effect of a range of house price inflation scenarios on different households in different occupations in different parts of the country over the next 50 years. It urges a change in Government policy, with the policy objective of house price stability.  In particular it proposes the withdrawal of the second phase of the Help to Buy initiative, arguing that it fuels the problem of high inflation.
