London is a safe haven for the world’s elite, boasting tax advantages for foreign ownership and a stable political environment, making the city the world’s premier financial centre. The main driver of the demand of UK, and especially London, Real Estate is the fundamental long-term stability, property law, education, law, time zone and attractive taxation for non-domiciled residents. These are all more in demand than ever as we see the world changing and the flight of capital to safe havens. In 2008, London real estate demonstrated its price resilience by only falling 30% compared with other major European cities which fell by more than 50%. Furthermore, London recovered to its pre-2007 levels quicker than any other major city; within three years.
