The plan was made to accelerate the delivery of affordable homes and has drawn up a housing affordability framework which aims to guarantee a strong supply of decent, secure housing to rent or buy for those under the average household income.

This strategy aims to cover a range of tenures such as social housing, reasonable rent properties, shared ownership or shared equity as well as rent to buy homes.

Bernard Priest, Deputy Leader of Manchester City Council stated, “Manchester is leading the way to ensure the city can deliver decent and secure housing that meets the basic requirements of the residents that belong to the below the average income of the city.”

House prices in the United Kingdom have risen again by 7.7% following a review in wake of Brexit vote

UK House prices have risen, suggesting that the market has stabilised following a few uncertain months after the UK’s vote to leave the EU. Growth of 7.7% took the average UK house price to £218,000.

 

Data from ONS shows house prices are continuing to grow month by month, with the changes to stamp duty and the Brexit vote not resulting in a decline in average prices.

 

An emerging trend is a reducing volume of sales. Current transaction volumes are lower than in 2014, 2015 and the start of 2016, suggesting a degree of caution and uncertainty in the market.

LONDON’S BOW STREET MAGISTRATES COURT PURCHASED BY QATARI INVESTORS

blog-1

A famous London court house has been purchased for an undisclosed sum by Doha based Business Trading Company (BTC) for conversion into a £125m ($156 million) unique luxury hotel. The acquisition follows a number of Qatari purchases of high end, luxury property in London such as Harrods, The Shard, Chelsea Barracks and the former US Embassy Building.

The Grade II listed building was constructed in 1881, and was once the home of the Bow Street Runners, London’s first professional police force. Infamous British names to be tried at the court include Oscar Wilde, the Kray brothers and, more recently, radical Islamic cleric Abu Hamza Al Masri.

The court ceased legal operations in 2006 and was later granted planning permission to be turned into a 100 bedroom hotel, with some rooms in the old cells.

Mehdi Ghalaie, managing director of BTC UK, told UK media that the company would work with conservation trust English Heritage, Westminster City Council and the Metropolitan Police to build a “world class boutique hotel that befits the history of this landmark building”.

According to popular Knight Frank reports, an estimate of £12.9 Billion investors invested in student property over the last decade with a majority of investors (39%) alone invested in 2015.

“Student Property has been the far most successful real estate asset classes, thanks to stability of demand for student bedrooms from all over the UK although the market is still under supplied structurally in most of the university cities” states James Pullan, the head of Knight Frank Student Accommodation.

2015 was a remarkable year for Purpose Built Student Accommodation (PBSA) investment market for making £5.1bn transactions. Out of 49,271, student bedrooms transacted over 46% were developed by institutions.

While the big picture of the market demonstrates (3.65%), every market is believed to have different credentials based on the current level of structural under supply along with development pipeline and its consistent distribution in a given year.

London projects (3.8%) and Manchester (4.8%) are relatively good examples of cities with large student populations and very consistent delivery pipelines. Both these cities projected a high rental growth rate in 2015 and is anticipated for a consistent rental growth with the national trend (3.65%) in 2016.
