The Government could cut stamp duty on sales of homes that have been improved to be more energy efficient. This coupled with the no stamp duty for first time buyers just been announced in the budget is indeed good news for prospective buyers.

The Minister of state for climate change and industry says doing so would encourage people to make their homes more environmentally friendly. So, if you think about this by making your home more energy efficient you will,

1, Save money on energy bills

2, Increase the value of your property

3, Make it more attractive to the buyer

4, Reduce your carbon footprint.

Perry told the BBC Today programme that the Government was considering the move.

She added: “We also need to look at building regulations and new building regulations to see what more needs to be done there.”

Perry also says that homeowners need to make their homes greener, so the Government meets its carbon emissions targets.

Some of the best ways to make properties more energy efficient are to install insulation measures such as loft insulation and external solid wall insulation. Other energy saving measures include ensuring your central heating boiler is working to maximum efficiency. As you can see this really is a win win situation and bear in mind some of the measures could be installed free or with a massive subsidy.
