The property markets in London have been lacking clear direction, but it is not bracing for a slump. Looking forward, we expect the outlook to remain opaque until the political situation stabilises, and further clarity is provided on the UK’s future trading relationships with the rest of the world. However, whatever the outcome, we expect London to remain a truly global city, continuing to attract businesses, capital and talent from around the world.
The Bank of England said the UK economy has hit a “temporary soft patch” as it kept interest rates on hold at 0.5%. The Bank cut its growth forecast for the year to 1.4%, down from the forecast of 1.8% made in February. The Bank says that cut is almost entirely due to the disruption to the economy caused by bad weather in March. However, Bank governor Mark Carney said in an interview with BBC economics editor Kamal Ahmed that “it’s likely” rates will rise this year. In a press conference after the rates decision was announced, Mr Carney said the “underlying pace of growth remains more resilient than the headline data suggests”.
