Government 'must act to ensure stable housing market for first-time buyers'

Seeking help for first-time buyers is possibly a shrewd move at such a "precarious" point in the housing market.

The Council for Mortgage Lenders has suggested the state of the country's property industry remains on a knife-edge, following the introduction of the new coalition government.

While the funding shortage affects all sectors, it is largely being dealt with by lenders and buyers.

However, plans to remove Bank of England support between 2011 and 2014 would probably create a significant deterioration in conditions, the organisation warns.

Meanwhile, the new government must ensure changes in regulation do not eat up so much of lenders' finances they become unwilling to fund home buys.

With a growing number of mortgage deals on the market, first-time buyers could be best advised to try and secure a home now while conditions are stable and attractive.
