Comment on Land Registry, December 2015

Peter Rollings, CEO of Marsh & Parsons, comments: Property values were climbing right up to the wire in 2015, giving homeowners a last-minute confidence boost around Christmas. Buyers also had plenty of reasons to feel positive, following the Chancellors Autumn Statement proclamations and the persistence of low mortgage rates. This optimism on both sides of the fence was combining to stimulate activity throughout the housing market.

London house prices have travelled the farthest distance over the past year, with growth well into double-digit territory fuelled mainly via price rises outside prime central London. But the housing market in the capital has also had some of the biggest obstacles thrown in its way, and so were still looking at substantially reduced price rises in the centre. Compared to a year ago, million pound property sales have slipped back 2% in the capital since stamp duty reform levied higher taxes at the middle and top-end of the property market. Both buyers and sellers at that level are having to be more price sensitive, and adjust their expectations. It remains to be seen how the second wave of stamp duty change targeted at buy-to-let investors may similarly distort the London market but in the short-term, well see a rush of demand from landlords and second home purchasers in the run up to April, which means heightened competition for first-time buyers.
