London has always been a strong investment area for buy-to-let investors. We are seeing capital growth and rental demand increase year on year as the population increases.
If you are looking to invest in UK buy-to-let property, especially in London, you should first consider value. Always buy at a discount initially or buy off plan for completion in two years or more. The price of the property will be set at current market values, so you will get incremental capital growth until you actually take transfer of the property.
Buy in areas of regeneration. London space is at a premium, so keep a look out for new train stations, transport hubs or local councils spending on neighbourhood upgrade schemes. These can indicate good capital growth in the short term.
We invest in London to hold, not to flip or sell on. Property is a slow wealth creation process which has a 10 to 15 year outlook in the City. You will be investing for hard currency returns in one of the world’s most vibrant and fastest growing cities.
As our investments are all bespoke and done on a deal by deal basis, please contact us for the new off-plan releases.
