George Osborne's new plan to bump up the stamp duty as well other knocks to buy-to-let landlords has caused a great deal of controversy, as the tensions between landlords and first time buyers continue to rise. As of next April, those who are thinking about buying a holiday home or purchasing a second buy-to-let property will need to pay an extra 3% in stamp duty.

At Wonderlease we understand that many landlords will want to take advantage of the stamp duty as it currently stands, before the changes come in to place.

The images below were taken on Saturday the 21st November from the view of our office and show the protesters on their way down Hoe Street, to the 23 estate agents. The 'Homes for All' campaign expressed their frustration at the rejuvenation of Walthamstow and the difficulty many are experiencing when trying to access the property ladder. There seems to be a wave of economic unrest across the UK and a great deal of pressure for the government develop a strategy towards the current housing crisis.
