In today's Budget, it will come as a relief to many that the stamp duty holiday will now be extended.

As was previously reported, the tax break on properties up to £500,000 will continue until the end of June.

Chancellor Rishi Sunak said it will be kept at double its standard level until the end of September, before returning to usual levels from the beginning of October.

He also confirmed today (Wednesday) that a Government guarantee will mean first-time buyers should get a wider choice of mortgages which only require five per cent of the loan.
