Chelsea Report May 2017

Chelsea is a vibrant and eclectic enclave of Prime Central London. It contrasts the traditional with the contemporary in terms of residents, retail, leisure and property. While its housing market is very established it stays current through the tasteful renovation and redevelopment of existing property while also welcoming new development. New large schemes on the fringes of Chelsea coupled with smaller developments slotted into the existing streetscape point to an exciting few years ahead.

Prime Central London Report - March 2017

Sales and lettings markets in Prime Central London have entered 2017 in a more optimistic mood. Both have suffered from price falls and an overhang of properties on the market during 2016, but with price adjustments from stamp duty changes now largely absorbed, the outlook is more promising.

Paddington - Bearing Fruit

Paddington’s roots are in transport and most crucially as a gateway into London. It has a rather chequered past, but is today being transformed into a new, vibrant business and residential community while the Heathrow Express and Crossrail are enhancing Paddington as a highly-connected transport hub. This JLL research assesses why we believe that the prospects for Paddington and for the residential market in and around Paddington are very bright.

South West Residential Forecasts – February 2017

The outlook for the South West economy and housing market is bright with Bristol a leading light in terms of economic growth and city centre living. The challenge ahead is how to generate enough housing in the current economic climate.

West Midlands Residential Forecasts - February 2017

Birmingham and the West Midlands face a challenge to build enough homes to support the rising population. The Birmingham residential market is going through the early throes of a transformational change where city centre living is becoming more popular.

Northern England Residential Forecasts – February 2017

Northern England’s main cities are beginning to thrive again. Manchester, the UK’s second city, is flourishing amid strong housing demand and significant development activity and is becoming increasingly global. Leeds and Liverpool are also now looking forward with greater confidence. The region will benefit further from the Government’s Northern Powerhouse programme.

Scotland Residential Forecasts – January 2017

We expect residential development activity to increase steadily over the next five years as the demand and supply imbalance intensifies. Housebuilders are feeling more optimistic but they are treading carefully, fully aware of the recent past as well as the uncertainties surrounding Brexit. These pressures will lead to price and rental growth especially in key city centres.

Shared Ownership - A Problem Shared January 2017

Affordability issues are mounting all across the UK pricing more and more people out of home ownership. Policy makers have dabbled with an array of demand side measures to ease the crisis, notably through shared ownership and shared equity tenures. However, supply of these products has been relatively subdued, until now.
