Homeowners warned over DIY danger
Homeowners attempting to have a go at DIY are being urged to think again after an over-enthusiastic householder botched a job which knocked £20,000 off the value of his neighbours’ homes and left his own property derelict.
Stamp duty offer
First-time buyers applying for a mortgage with Bank of Scotland can benefit from up to £2500 cash back, with the lender covering the cost of stamp duty.
Planning changes praised
The Scottish Property Federation (SPF) has welcomed proposed changes to Scotland’s planning system, which places greater importance on supporting sustainable economic growth.
