Savills research points to a significant reduction in London land transactions over the last six months. Central London residential land values have declined 5.5% annually but have remained stable over the last quarter, however Outer London values have declined by 9.5% in the six months to March 2023 taking the annual decline to 16%.
The Outer London market has been disproportionately impacted by build cost inflation, slowing sales rates, the end of Help to Buy and rising mortgage rates. For the six months to March 2023 office land values have declined by 17.6% in Central London and 22.6% in Outer London.
