Why specialising, partnering and and funding joint ventures are more important than ever, in a fast-changing property market

  • Mortgage interest relief, which discourages the ownership by individuals of buy to let property through taxation, reducing the number of individuals investing directly in the residential space
  • Stamp duty surcharge, which discourages individuals from buying additional residential properties to hold or develop, so that individuals are less likely to invest directly, and independently in the residential market
  • Encouragement of institutional investors, with measures ranging from taxation reliefs for REITs (holding) to facilitating Build to Rent (schemes of 50+ units for development then renting out) through planning/viability, which encourages the development of multiple units held by a smaller number of more professional or corporate entities
  • Increasing prevalence of local and national standards and regulations, from Building Control to HMO licensing, meaning strong and specialist knowledge is required by all active parties to ensure compliance.
