Trevor Cutmore and Jeroen then gave a market update with yet again conflicting news reports, some of doom and gloom and some stating property prices are rising!
During this time we got a feel of what is happening on the ground in London, through a general discussion - there was majority feeling that rents are going down in London. Jeroen went on to say he did not have this problem with his portfolio; quality product is still in high demand, clearly!
Manish Shah's talk "The Mortgage Strikes Back" had the audience gripped, with some big names (Justin Brewer for one) in the London Serviced Accommodation arena attending specially for this talk. His finance product that may become available to finance a BTL property with the added flexibility to also use the property as Serviced Accommodation. An interesting and exciting prospect!
