The provision of student housing in the UK is currently the highest in Europe, with 27% of all students able to be accommodated. Despite higher levels of supply, the UK market is still a lucrative one for investors. We’re looking at where the current opportunities are for investment, the trends affecting demand and how external factors could influence the sector.
It’s an interesting time for the UK property market. Despite political and economic uncertainty leaving mainstream buyers waiting to see how the year pans out, reluctant to buy or sell unless they have little choice, it’s not all as doom and gloom as some would have us believe. We’ve examined some of the key regional property trends for 2019.
After a peak in mid-2017, the London Residential property market is facing strain as low affordability and falling house prices contribute to a slow decline. A recent sales report by Molior London found that, removing Build to Rent figures from the picture, the London new homes market sold fewer units in the inner-city area in 2018 than every year since 2012. With these statistics in mind, we’re taking a look at how residential development in London continues to change.
LD Events actively supports 'The Passage' (www.passage.org.uk), which seeks to combat homelessness and its causes.
The Passage provides resources to encourage, inspire and challenge homeless people to transform their lives. The Victoria-based charity believes in a ‘hand up’ not a ‘hand out’, addressing root causes of someone becoming homeless in order to help them break the cycle for good. The Passage offers a wide range of services to help London’s homeless, such as operating London’s largest voluntary sector day centre, undertaking local street outreach work, managing a direct access hostel, facilitating access to health professionals and providing education/training. The Passage has a 3:1 volunteer to staff ratio, so approximately 90p in every £1 of funds generated goes directly to its services.
