London Lettings: February 2012

March 7th, 2012

“This year has seen a shift in the lettings market with up to 30% more available properties than this time last year and signs that the market is undergoing a period of correction. Rents remain at an all-time high although the first two months of this year has seen some very marginal decreases, due to the increased level of stock.

“Whereas in the last two years it has been a landlords market, the power has now shifted to the tenant as increasing stock levels means they can now afford to look longer and harder to find their perfect rental property and negotiate on terms.

“Demand from corporate tenants and ex pat families relocating to London has diminished this year, we will have to see whether the spring / summer will bring with it the usual influx of families who traditionally look to settle before the new school term starts.

“Currently the activity in the main is at the lower end as domestic demand remains strong. There is evidence that these tenants have started to look outside their desired areas the high rents now being commanded in the most popular residential areas have become over budget for many young professionals, who have not seen similar increases in earnings.

“As yields for buy-to-let properties in London decreases and sales prices increase, we could see a number of landlords opting to sell their property and cash in on the high prices being achieved.”

Hurford Salvi Carr 2010 market overview

December 14th, 2010

There was, therefore, a four month lead-in time to the CSR with much press speculation on where the axe would fall and the possible longer-term impact on the UK economy. This was not a context to engender confidence in the housing market. The Halifax index, for example, showed consistent negative quarterly returns for national house prices from April 2010 onwards. By the end of October 2010 annual growth in the index had been cut to 1.2% from 6.9% in May 2010.

UK volume housebuilders attributed a weaker than expected autumn selling period, second only in importance to the spring, to a lack of confidence caused by the build-up to the October CSR. Barratt, the UK’s biggest housebuilder by volume, blamed the combination of the lead up to the CSR along with the lack of available mortgage finance. In November, its chief executive Mark Clare commented, “It won’t come as a surprise to anyone if I say the autumn selling season was more challenging than we are used to. But there was a lot of media speculation about what was going to be in the spending review and potential buyers decided they didn’t want to make a big financial commitment until there was more certainty.”

In the CSR the Chancellor announced cuts in public spending of £81 billion between now and 2014-15. £46 billion of these savings are to come from cutting departmental running costs, with the Government aiming to reduce public sector employment by up to 490,000 by 2015. Inevitably there will be knock-on effects for the private sector. There is a broad consensus, however, that the impact on the economy will be most strongly felt in the regions where the public sector forms a higher proportion of economic activity. For central London property, including Midtown, City and Docklands, the local impact of the cuts proposed in the CSR is likely to be less significant.

The availability of mortgage finance remained problematic and is likely to ease only marginally in future years. According to the Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML) gross lending in October 2010 was estimated at £12.4 billion, the lowest total for the month of October since 2000. The monthly average in 2007 was in excess of £30 billion and the CML commented that the mortgage market remained “subdued”. Net lending was weak, amounting to only £112 million in September 2010, down from £1.62 billion in August according to The Bank of England. The number of mortgages approved for house purchase in September was 47,474, a fifth consecutive monthly fall and the lowest figure since February 2010. The Midtown, City and Docklands markets, however, are partially insulated from the weakness of the mortgage market by the greater proportion of equity-rich and outright cash-buyers.

Local Property History Shoreditch and Hoxton

September 17th, 2010

During 1601 most of the Shoreditch habitants lived near Holywell Street- Shoreditch High Street that led north to the parish of Shoreditch (St Leonard’s) at the North West end. In this area the High Street joints the Old Street and to the north side it met the Kingsland Road both of these streets having origins since Roman periods. On the east of the Kingsland Road, there were big houses such as fifteenth century Copt Hall. However, in 1602, the clay soil in the area between Hackney Road and Kingsland Road were being used to make bricks and just 12 years later , the Shoreditch area saw its brick terrace- Rotten Row or Ratcliffe- which were built close by.

Property and homes differs in this region east of the City.

Property Prices in Stratford, London

August 27th, 2010

The hosting of the 2012 Olympics in London is great news for the city and for the UK. The main Olympic Park will be situated close to Stratford and as a result the surrounding area is seeing large scale regeneration and it is predicted that the Olympics will have a positive impact on transport links, urban gentrification and the local economy. Unfortunately so many positive aspects can have some fallbacks, as urban gentrification progresses a rise in property prices can often follow, which in turn can cause local property taxes to rise which can result in some residents having to move out of the area.

Property prices are also likely to rise in the area which can mean that some properties and areas can become too expensive for some people. Coupled with the current difficulties with the banks, which has made it difficult for some people to take out mortgages, individuals with low incomes or indeed contractors (without a steady income) may find it difficult to move to the area. Contractors and the self-employed in particular often find it difficult to take out mortgages due to the nature of their employment status as it can be difficult to prove a regular income; in this case mortgages for contractors are best achieved using the help of contractor specialists.
On a positive note though gentrification can often bring lower crime levels and new business to areas, so I believe the impact will ultimately be beneficial for the Stratford area. The regeneration of Stratford and the forthcoming Olympic Games will be beneficial for London as a city and a celebration the whole world can share in.

New Labour in order to rule us for the next four

August 22nd, 2010

The new government would listen to all our problems and would make our lives improved in ways which we could not only imagine and things could only become better. I’m just chattering pointlessly, on purpose, since if I had said the word Home Information Pack then you would, quite truly, have stopped reading at least twenty seconds ago. But please bear with me; you are really going to be amazed. I know about pop music and had a record shop twenty years ago on the Fulham Road. I had also worked for D&G for more than twenty three years and I’m having quite knowledge about property as well. We (professionals) have tried several ways to advise the Labour Housing Ministers (which is not experts) regarding how to improve our industry on several occasions, however to no benefit.

History of the Town Bow and Bow Property

July 7th, 2010

Even now, the centre of bow remains as a bow church. Especially, the bridge besides river lee is a four lane flyover. It has both the black wall tunnel and lee approach below the flyover. Its high street has large post-war housing and few shops that are located in the south. However, history of the town bow says that, during 1556, from new gate countless natives were brought to this place by cart. During English reformation, they were being burned at stake, which is in front of the bow church.  However, in seventeenth century, bow became famous for goose fair that is held after the Pentecost.

After some time, it degenerated and fascinated lose women and drunken crowds. Later in the middle of nineteenth century, the authorities have banned the fair. Bow is one of the most famous areas in London. It is located at the distance of 7.4km to the east of charring cross and is a major part of its eastern end. According to the history of the town bow during the nineteenth century, it saw the success of fine pottery works. In bow, the porcelain works are eminent as bow porcelain. At the end of the nineteenth century, this industry completely disappeared. Nevertheless, now every apartment and property in bow is becoming UK’s foremost market source for property.

History of the town bow is mostly related to the porcelain works. But now, these are replaced by increasing factories, especially after the industrial revolution. Among these some of the factories were may match factory and Bryant factory.  Accidently, the May factory and Bryant factory was closed in 1979. This has been converted to flats. These flats are prominent as bow quarter. Some of its areas like brthnal green, shore ditch, and white chapel are too expensive for many individuals. However, for many people bow is one of the most desirable places in London. Therefore, many people are trying to buy flat or property in bow.
