The London property market has long been considered a safe haven for the astute investor. Such investments are deemed to be low risk, due to the healthy yields from rental and significant capital growth - Savill’s forecast growth in excess of 10% over the next 5 years. ONS figures show London’s population grew 5.7% between 2011 and 2015, which is twice the national average. During the past 20 years, London has built an average of 17,350 homes per year, well below the 52,000 required according to a report by CBRE. This deficit in supply offers an excellent opportunity for investors, with this trend set to continue for many years, the likelihood is the deficit will grow, positively impacting the value of real estate investments.
