Taylor Wimpey sees recovery building

Taylor Wimpey yesterday became the latest housebuilder to report rising demand off the back of the Government's Help to Buy scheme. Its order book is up 18 per cent to £1.2bn in 2013 against the same period of last year.

Wimpey said buyer interest had been up 15 per cent before the £5.4bn package of loans and guarantees in the Budget, but it had seen rises in interest since.
