【明報專訊】英國政府早前表示,將會擴大BNO香港持有人於當地的居留權利,吸引了不少欲移民尋找後路的港人。事實上不論外媒還是地產代理都同樣指出,今年港人到英國買樓興趣明顯增加。英國本身也因新冠肺炎疫情積壓部分購買力獲釋放,以及印花稅寬免等因素,帶動當地樓價單月增幅創16年來新高,市場氣氛熾熱,看似走出脫歐公投後的陰霾。有代理透露,隨本港防疫限制措施鬆綁,前來英國物業展覽的人數急增,而今年1月時,旗下英國樓盤於香港的成交急增了3倍。 自英國脫歐公投起,由於巨大的不明朗政治因素籠罩,再加上今年新冠肺炎疫情衝擊,樓市氣氛不樂觀。不過,即使英國第二季面對史上最深的經濟衰退,Nationwide公布8月英國平均樓價卻急升達2%,單月升幅創16年來新高。主要原因之一,為當地政府由7月起寬免了上車人士購買50萬鎊以下物業的印花稅,限期到明年3月,加上疫情後不少人都期望換大單位,釋放出不少購買力。 https://news.mingpao.com/pns/%E7%B6%93%E6%BF%9F/article/20200911/s00004/1599761943558/%E5%80%AB%E6%95%A6%E5%B8%82%E4%B8%AD%E5%BF%83%E8%B1%AA%E5%AE%85-%E5%85%A5%E5%A0%B4%E8%B2%BB1200%E8%90%AC-%E8%8B%B1%E5%9C%8B%E5%8D%87%E5%AD%B8%E9%9C%80%E6%B1%82%E5%A4%A7-%E5%80%AB%E6%95%A6%E4%B8%80%E4%BA%8C%E5%8D%80%E8%B2%B7%E6%A8%93%E4%BE%BF%E5%88%A9%E4%B8%8A%E5%AD%B8
