ebuild is sad to announce its closure - it has become too time and resource intensive to develop, manage and maintain.

However, ebuild will remain on-line in archive mode (ie no posting facilties) for several weeks so that users can use it as an information resource.

On another forum there has been loads of discussing about the new ' landlord tax' and the effect on new build volumes, as follows...

It will certainly be a massive blow to the house building industry. 1 in 4 sales on many sites are to BTL buyers and on some sites 1 in 3. If sales slow by a quarter to a third builders will slow down the rate of build. I can see jobs being lost and more consolidation within the industry at a time when we desperately need more homes to be built. When sales rates slow even the owner occupier sales fall off because sites lose momentum.

So will New build costs come down?
