There have been considerable measures taken by the government. However, there is no evidence to support that how the poor will be benefited from these measures. In order to be more clearly and with the aim of providing good homes for all in the society, certain recommendations have been mentioned in the report. Firstly the spending has to be reviewed so that benefits are not outweighed by unintended consequences. Another important consideration is ‘Right to Buy’ to be replaced by portable home ownership discount for tenants. Under this discount will be given to the tenants during the course of tenancy and this can be used after three years for purchasing the property. This discount would be provided by UK government and will be integrated with the ‘Help to Buy’ scheme. This recommendation will be of benefit for the low income homes available in the market and the supply for the low income earner will increase. There will also be support for providing sufficient funding over the period of time. Lastly, tax exemption for old people is to be introduced in order to move to smaller homes and selling off larger property.
The above recommendation clearly shows that the government expenses would increase in the form of discounts and the tax exemptions for the old people (Bade & Parkin, 2012). Such actions are taken by the government are the government transfers. This will increase the expenses of the government. However, with the increase in benefits, the affordability will increase and more housing properties can be rented. This will increase the government revenue in the form of taxes. The other consideration that is there with respect to this recommendation is that the benefits may be capped in order to control the government expenses. This is to say that with this regulation the demand for high rented properties may increase as there is higher benefit rather than low rent properties. Secondly, this benefit should also be linked with the income level. Taking these steps will certainly take the benefits where it is intended to deliver.
