Central London Marketbeat provides an overview of the occupational and investment markets across Central London for Q1 2016. It summarises the property market fundaments, such as take-up, supply and rents in the main markets - City, West End and East London.
Despite the impact of the referendum, solid economic growth is anticipated to continue for 2016. A number of factors support this outlook but even ignoring Brexit, there is still no escaping that there are likely to be bumps along the way.
The underlying trends in the property market still remain robust, albeit there is no doubt that sentiment has moderated over the quarter. The prognosis is that this is more a pause as occupiers and investors take stock of a number of factors and once certainty returns to the market activity will rebound in the second half of the year.
