Since Issue Three, the government has introduced an additional 3% on each Stamp Duty Land Tax level for those purchasing any additional property and announced that the reduction in Capital Gains Tax, part of the March 2016 budget, will not apply to residential sales. This increased taxation comes in addition to the higher rates of STLD, the Annual Tax on Enveloped Dwellings and extension of CGT to non-residents that were implemented in the last 16 months. Additionally, from April 2017, there will be a reduction in tax relief on the interest on mortgages for rental properties. The markets in which we operate have therefore been subject to much legislative change that directly impacts demand. We have also had the London Mayoral election to contend with and the EU Referendum causing another degree of uncertainty in the market. Greater importance must thus be placed upon gauging local market conditions correctly when considering a property transaction. Please do contact your local Jackson-Stops & Staff office for further information or specific property advice at any time.

south west London and Surrey market comment House prices rose across London by 13.9% over the last 12 months (March 2015 - March 2016), reported by the Land Registry. The average price now stands at £534,785. The higher value markets continue to appreciate albeit far less than the lower value boroughs. The graph (below, right) shows the annual growth in the most expensive 25% of London boroughs in comparison to the 25% lowest value. The volume of sales in the non-central prime areas such as Richmond and Wimbledon were lower in 2015 than 2014. For example, the borough of Richmond upon Thames averaged 260 sales per month in 2015 whereas the average was 284 in 2014. JacksonStops & Staff’s south west London offices recorded a ratio of 3 prospective purchasers to every prospective seller in the last 12 months (Mar 2015 - Mar 2016)** whereas during the 12 months prior the ratio was 3.9, demonstrating reduced demand which helps to explain the lower transaction levels. Higher holding and transaction costs along with the uncertainty of the EU Referendum will continue to result in a disproportionate dampening effect in the higher value markets. The additional 3% stamp duty levied on individuals buying as an investment or additional residence took hold from 1st April and will further reduce demand in our markets where buy-to-let purchases are an important component of overall demand. Despite this lower activity, prices remain firm with some upward movement. It is important to note that the 8.4% growth in boroughs such as Richmond upon Thames over the last 12 months (Mar 2015 - Mar 2016)* is comparatively strong when compared to other asset classes, highlighting that even with reduced demand at the high-end good activity remains to drive price inflation. In the lettings market, our offices have seen continuing demand for rental property and prices across the non-central regions are appreciating marginally. Demand for larger houses has been somewhat affected by uncertainty and poor performance in financial sectors and we have seen a number of corporate tenancies not renew and less enquiries from relocation companies. However, high capital values and increased taxes in the sales market makes renting proportionally more viable, acting to compensate this somewhat. Generally, our offices are seeing consistent underlying demand for both flats and houses, conducive to keeping rental prices strong. Robert Butterworth BA(Econ) Head of Research

my patch Tina Evans, Group Director of Frank Harris & Company and Head of Sales at Jackson-Stops & Staff’s associated office in the City of London, tells us why she lives and breathes this unique part of London.

QA

Where do you live and why? I moved to the South Bank three years ago and love it here. I wanted an easy commute and most days I walk to my office in the City. My flat is off Lower Marsh, behind Waterloo station, which is a wonderfully quirky street with an excellent food market and a number of specialist shops you can’t find anywhere else in London. What are the main changes you’ve seen in the time you’ve worked in the City? The biggest change is that people now have their main home here whereas in the past it was largely a place people only stayed during the week. We’ve been selling flats in the Barbican for more than 30 years and it’s become a magnet for families, couples, empty nesters, even retirees, as have the rest of the City and surrounding areas. There’s so much more to do in the City now, especially in the evenings and on the weekends.

Tina Evans Group Director Frank Harris & Company 87 Long Lane, London EC1A 9ET 020 7600 7000 tinaevans@frankharris.co.uk

What are the latest trends in property design in the area? People are far more design conscious nowadays. You see all sorts of flooring wood, cork, rubber, for example, and a

huge variety of kitchen worktops - concrete, granite, stainless steel, marble etc. Where’s the best place to go for a Friday night cocktail? Bird of Smithfield opposite Smithfield market has a lovely roof garden - great for a glass of Prosecco on a warm evening. …and a perfect place for Sunday brunch? Capricci, round the corner from the Tate Modern, is a classic Italian that uses fresh ingredients. Finally, tell us a little known fact about the area? There’s a new development in Shoreditch that will include a 200-seat amphitheatre and heritage centre on the site of Shakespeare’s Curtain Theatre, which is where Romeo and Juliet and Henry V were first performed in 1577.

Wimbledon In just a few days from now the eyes of the world will be focused on SW19 once again, as tennis players at the top of their game congregate for another much-loved tournament enjoyed by millions of spectators around the globe.

On a more local scale, we continue to sponsor the Zorb Balls at the Wimbledon Guild Village Fair in June. Please do come along and say hello to the team. Alongside tennis, Wimbledon’s popularity endures due to the outstanding quality of life it provides to young professionals, growing families and downsizing retirees alike; quite simply, it offers something for everyone: beautiful open spaces, an abundance of cafÊs, restaurants and bars in the Village, excellent transport links and an array of outstanding schooling options in both the state and private sectors.

How is the sales market performing in your patch at the moment? Before the introduction of the additional 3% stamp duty levy back in April, our Village office experienced a heightened level of activity as motivated buyers sought to purchase their properties ahead of the extra charges after that date. However, the high end of the market is still being affected slightly by the stamp duty increases introduced last year, which have proven to be prohibitively high for some people looking to buy.

How is the lettings market performing in your patch at the moment? When we look back to the business we achieved last year in the first quarter, we are already outperforming rental figures this calendar year. The local lettings market in Wimbledon remains strong for all the usual reasons: location and proximity to London, lifestyle factors and fantastic schooling opportunities for families. I believe 2016 will be a record year for our Wimbledon office.

How have the recent legislative changes in the property market impacted upon your area? The biggest changes we have seen are with regard to stamp duty and the new tax implications for investors. This could lead to a proportion of those investors choosing to come out of the market and the possibility of greater numbers of similar properties coming to the market, such as two bedroom flats; the end result could be a slight downward pressure on prices, which is good news for first time buyers in the area. What’s been the most significant property trend in your area since you’ve worked here? In the Village, it is the large number of residents looking to downsize within the same area. We help many clients who are looking to sell their large family homes once the children have grown up and moved away, but who wish to remain in the Village and downsize to smaller properties offering more manageable living space. In the town, the family house market is driven largely by school catchment areas, as it is all over London. Sum up Wimbledon for us in just three words: Wombles, tennis, Common.

Is there a most frequently requested type of property by tenants looking to rent in the local area? We have been helping a large number of applicants looking for a wide range of property types since registering with us in the last few weeks, so it’s hard to pinpoint one particularly popular style. We let properties ranging from one bedroom apartments through to the substantial, six bedroom family homes. I think it’s true to say that Wimbledon caters for every personal taste. What’s been the most significant change to the lettings market since you began working here? In more recent times, we have noted a reduction in the budgets of corporate clients being relocated for work placements, which is due mainly to a number of global social and economic factors. However, we have also experienced strong demand from a number of local companies, which has meant an increase in the number of British corporate tenants moving into the areas in which we operate. Sum up Wimbledon for us in just three words: Simply stunning (in) summer.

jackson-stops.co.uk/london Teddington’s continuing popularity with young professionals, growing families and downsizing retirees wanting proximity to the cultural attractions of London is clear to see. For those living in TW11 and the surrounding areas it’s easy to understand the attraction; the town’s thriving community is alive and kicking - quite literally, in the case of TRFC. We are absolutely thrilled to have renewed another three-year sponsorship of the Minis section, which allows us to support the many local families who are so passionate about their fantastic club. We always enjoy meeting members who walk by our office on the High Street, do pop in next time you are passing. We have achieved strong prices for clients this year, a result that has been apparent across all price brackets, particularly within the lower and middle market where a shortage of stock continues. Both our sales and lettings teams are proud of their recordbreaking financial year and are confident this pattern will continue. Our experienced lettings team is always happy to advise investor landlords on expanding their property portfolios and the various points to consider; with strong rental yields and capital growth continuing, the local Teddington market remains resilient against a slightly precarious global backdrop. 14 | jackson-stops.co.uk/london | facebook.com/JSSLondon

How is the sales market performing in your patch at the moment? Whilst the local market at the upper end is tougher than it has been, there are still excellent opportunities out there for sellers; it’s our job as agents to look under every stone in order to find the right buyers.

How is the lettings market performing in your patch at the moment? We have just achieved another record breaking year for lettings and we continue to be incredibly busy. The market has gained momentum now that we’re in the traditionally busy period of late spring, including the high-end rental properties.

How have the recent legislative changes in the property market impacted upon your area? To be honest, it’s still relatively early days but my instinct is that investors in Teddington will continue to buy-to-let with confidence and will simply factor the additional stamp duty costs into their purchasing sums. What’s been the most significant property trend in your area since you’ve worked here? The demand for high-quality, centrally located family homes within the £1m to £1.5m price bracket is unrelenting. Teddington really does hold a special appeal for those looking to raise their families in an area with excellent schools, leisure facilities, transport links and wide open spaces. Sum up Teddington for us in just three words: Popular, convenient, unique.

Is there a most frequently requested type of property by tenants looking to rent in the local area? At the moment it is the good quality one and two bedroom apartments close to the station and the centrally located family houses which are in highest demand. School catchments continue to play an important part of the decision-making process. What’s been the most significant change to the lettings market since you began working here? In all the years I’ve worked here, there’s just a general sense that the area has become increasingly popular as a great place to rent. Teddington remains highly desirable, accessible and relatively affordable in comparison to other London commuter areas. Sum up Teddington for us in just three words: Town + country = Teddington. jackson-stops.co.uk/london | facebook.com/JSSLondon | 15

The last few months have been good to Elmbridge, an area that continues to thrive against the backdrop of a slightly less settled central London property market. Whilst the upper end of the sales market continues to react against the stamp duty changes introduced last year, we continue to experience exceptionally high demand for properties in the middle market. Families have continued to gravitate to the area, many relocating from central London locations, in order to take advantage of the fantastic local schools within the state and private sector. Indeed, one of the questions we are asked most often from buyers and renters alike, remains ‘is it within catchment?’ Several members of our team are parents themselves and are always happy to advise on the latest information available. We are delighted to announce our three-year partnership with the Cleves School PTA and will be acting as their main sponsor throughout this period. It has been a pleasure getting to know PTA members in recent weeks and we will work hard to support this fantastic community over the coming months, with a variety of exciting events planned. Do get in touch or visit us to discuss your property requirements, we would be delighted to assist you.

How is the sales market performing in your patch at the moment? Across Elmbridge, the market up to about £1.75m remains buoyant and active, with too many buyers and not enough sellers. Properties above this bracket are taking a little longer to sell but prices are holding their own; the key is to stay in control - in other words, sell when you want to, not when you have to!

How is the lettings market performing in your patch at the moment? There is currently high demand for properties as the availability across the area is low. This is partly due to tenants renewing their tenancies and opting to stay in a property for longer rather than locating elsewhere. This is a positive sign for landlords as it means that tenants are fixing in for longer and therefore landlords are not facing void periods between tenancies.

How have the recent legislative changes in the property market impacted upon your area? Property sales between £2m and £3m have been affected the most, however this year sales at £3.5m or above have picked up. The more ‘affordable’ middle market continues to set records and multiple offers are still common, remaining largely unaffected by the Chancellor’s tinkering. What’s been the most significant property trend in your area since you’ve worked here? A continuing lack of stock across the region has allowed prices to continue to rise and the premium attached to new build sale prices has allowed neighbouring property to ‘piggy back’ on the back of those increases. Sum up Weybridge for us in just three words: Happy, affluent, productive.

Is there a most frequently requested type of property by tenants looking to rent in the local area? There is a demand for various types of accommodation, ranging from one and two bedroom apartments for commuters and professionals, through to large family homes that remain such a pull in this familyfriendly area. What’s been the most significant change to the lettings market since you began working here? The corporate market was starting to slow last year, with a number of international families looking to relocate back home; however, this year we have experienced an increase in the number of corporate clients coming through, mostly from the relocation agents we work with closely. We have also seen a change in stamp duty payable on buy-to-lets and second homes; it will be interesting to see the impact this has on the local rental market. Sum up Weybridge for us in just three words: Dynamic, attractive, multifaceted.

pay less Stamp Duty by taking on a property that needs restoration The rapid increase in the rate of SDLT (Stamp Duty) paid on the purchase of a house has turned what was once a relatively benign tax into an increasingly hot topic. In paying less for a property to take account of any restoration work required it obviously means there is less Stamp Duty to pay upon the transaction. The added benefit is that there is a greater chance of enhancing the value of the property and having it decorated and appointed to meet your own particular style and requirements. By taking on the restoration of a Grade II* building there are additional challenges to consider, but, in general, Listed Building Consent is required only where alterations are being made and not for like for like repairs. The rewards are not only financial; there is the satisfaction of securing the future of part of England’s built heritage so that it is fit, not only for 21st century living, but also for future generations to enjoy. This was the approach taken by the owners of Fiddler’s Croft some fifty years ago when they purchased the property and today it once again needs restoration and to be brought up to date. The house sits on the edge of the village of Little Hadham in Hertfordshire. It is Listed Grade ll* and dates from the early 17th century with later additions. The accommodation is flexible and includes three reception rooms, a master bedroom with en suite bathroom, three or four further bedrooms, a family bathroom, garage and outbuildings. The house is full of character with decorative plaster work, exposed timbers and period detail. It is set in just under two and a half acres and surrounded by farmland. Fiddler’s Croft is within easy reach of the excellent schools in Bishop’s Stortford and good commuting to London.

The borough of Richmond upon Thames continues to attract high numbers of central Londoners migrating further west in search of beautiful green spaces, stunning architectural styles and a wide array of fabulous shops, bars and restaurants. Richmond feels like the perfect stepping stone from central London living, offering the best of town and country living. Take a stroll through Richmond Park - the largest of London’s eight Royal Parks - and you could be forgiven for thinking you were deep in rural countryside; yet with the District Line and fast train links into central London, the bright lights of city life are never far away. A number of our clients are long-term residents within the borough; having raised their families and built a network of friends here they are understandably keen to remain in the area, perhaps choosing to downsize into a more manageably sized property. We are always happy to discuss the different ways in which a downsize can be managed and would be delighted to assist if this would be of interest. Whether you are selling or buying, letting or renting, do get in touch to discuss your personal property requirements, it would be our pleasure to help.

How is the sales market performing in your patch at the moment? Various external factors such as the imminent EU Referendum and uncertainty of markets across the world have meant that the market has become more challenging in Richmond; buyers are expecting value for money and vendors are hoping for continued price rises, which can be challenging when attempting to meet at a realistic price.

How is the lettings market performing in your patch at the moment? The market is gathering momentum now that we are well into springtime, which is traditionally our busiest time of year as tenants look to settle in time for the summer months.

How have the recent legislative changes in the property market impacted upon your area? At the beginning of the year there was an increase in the number of landlords bringing their property to the market; more recently, we have experienced a reduced number of new investors looking to purchase due to the increased stamp duty charges; these charges have had a particular affect at the the higher end of the market. However, demand within the middle market remains strong. What’s been the most significant property trend in your area since you’ve worked here? There has been a steady increase in property prices over the last three years, which is testament to the huge popularity of this borough. Sum up Richmond for us in just three words: Elegant, fun, vibrant.

Is there a most frequently requested type of property by tenants looking to rent in the local area? Two bedroom houses or cottages with contemporary finishes, furnishings and manageable gardens are very much in demand by the steady stream of young professionals who register to rent with us. What’s been the most significant change to the lettings market since you began working here? The number of buy-to-let landlords has increased significantly since I started working at Jackson-Stops & Staff; whilst the central London rental market has been an excellent investment opportunity for some time, it is the outer boroughs such as Richmond upon Thames which have continued to flourish more recently in terms of capital gains for landlords. Sum up Richmond for us in just three words: Historic, sophisticated, picturesque.
