West London is served by seven out of the twelve London Underground lines and the use of the tube is largely determined by what area you live.

Is The London Housing Bubble About To Burst?

A recent report by the London Evening Standard has highlighted the fact that the London property market is slowing down at quite a pace – leading analysts and industry figures to question whether or not the housing bubble is about to burst.

Key indicators behind the housing market include the momentum with which house prices are increasing, which according to analysts has slowed down significantly over the last year. Although prices are still increasing for property in London, the rate of those increases isn’t as fast as it has been in the past. The numbers of enquiries for property have also dropped, leaving them at their lowest point since 2008.
A number of factors have been linked to the slow down in London’s property market, including stricter mortgage lending rules that came into place in April – and also the impending Bank of England base rate increase, which has led many would-be buyers to hold off taking out a mortgage due to the potential increase in cost that any base rate increase would bring.
It’s hard to say whether or not the bubble will burst – and if it does, for how long. This could be just a small jitter in the rapid increase in the cost of living in London – or it could be a sign that there are serious problems on the road ahead. London is a truly global city that appeals to people from all corners of the globe and all walks of life. If the bubble does burst then it’s likely to offer some respite to first time buyers looking to get onto the housing ladder, but at the same time, demand for property in London is likely to remain high, so that bubble won’t burst for long.

More Families Move From West London to Home Counties

More Families Move From West London to Home Counties
Homeowners in London have witnessed huge gains in the value of their properties over the last decade or so – even bucking the downward trend of “the Great Recession”. A recent article in the Guardian, however, highlighted that according to research by Savills, an increasing number of people are now selling up in the capital and opting for property in the Home Counties instead.
Lots of people making the move from London have switched to areas such as Kent and Surrey – with others moving as far away as Oxford and Cambridge.

A slow down in the increase in value of properties is thought to be behind the exodus, with a large proportion of movers in West London also noticing the trend.
Now might be perceived as a great time to move out of London while house prices continue to increase year on year. A recent article looks at whether or not the house price in bubble is shortly going to burst.
While much of the UK is seeing strong recovery growth as the country emerges from the worst recession for decades, growth in the London housing market is still positive, but it’s occurring at a slower rate compared to five years ago.
In terms of commercial property, London is still booming with lots of start-up companies and international investors having to turn to other UK cities for more affordable office space. Vacancy rates are at a record low, and rental prices per square foot are exceeding £100 per month in many cases.
Only time will tell if the people jumping from London to the Home Counties have made the right decision – or whether or not those properties will continue to increase in value. One thing is for sure, however, property in London is in high demand and it looks things will remain the same for the foreseeable future.

Five Things to do when you first Move to London.

Things to do when you Move to London
You’ve packed your bags (and boxes), and you’ve made the incredible leap from your hometown, to London! What do you do? Where do you go? In this post Central Moves are going to suggest five great things to do when you move to London – activities that are a little off the well-beaten tourist track that the capital is famous for.

1. Venture down to Chinatown!

London’s Chinatown is world-famous – it’s the second largest Chinatown in Europe. You’ll find a huge number of Chinese restaurants and oriental supermarkets in this bustling part of the City. The bulk of London’s Chinatown restaurants can be found on Gerrard Street and Wardour Street – where you can dine at a budget buffet for under £10 per head, or you can feast on the finest dim sum in one of the higher end establishments.

2. Take in an event at Wembley

Wembley Stadium is hugely impressive in every way – it towers above the skyline. It doesn’t matter what event you attend – but you must go to one! There are lot of sport events including football games, NFL matches – even outdoor music events and concerts!

3. Catch a London Taxi to Brick Lane

Brick Lane is popular with fans of Indian cuisine – you’ll taste some of the best curry this side of India when you dine out at Brick Lane. One little tip: Don’t forget to ask for a discount before you enter your chosen restaurant! There’s always a few pounds to be saved, and discounts are always forthcoming so don’t be too shy to ask!

4. Walk round Harrods

OK – we did say we’d steer clear of the tourist track, but Harrods is too good to ignore – it’s an institution in its own right! Take a walk around Harrods and marvel at all the things you’d buy if you had a limitless credit card.

5. Check out some of London’s famous markets

London plays host to many different markets selling a huge range of goods, from designer labels to handmade products from emerging small businesses. Take a trip down to Brick Lane Market, Portobello Road Market, or even Greenwich Market – you won’t be disappointed!
There’s so much to see and do in London, even for new locals like you!

Balham is situated between four south London commons: Clapham Common to the north, Wandsworth Common to the west, Tooting Graveney Common to the south, and the adjoining Tooting Bec Common to the east. Balham’s town centre has a variety of bars, coffee shops, restaurants, shops and a farmers market.

The Polish population in Balham has hugely increased since 2006, though Balham has been one of the centres of the community in London since World War II.

Du Cane Court is the largest block of flats in Europe built for private occupation rather than as social housing. Its 676 flats range from studios up to 4-bedroom penthouses. The block has had a number of notable residents, including comedian Tommy Trinder, actress Dame Margaret Rutherford, model/showgirl Christine Keeler, and, currently, comedian and writer Arthur Smith. Scenes from Agatha Christie’s Poirot were filmed in the building.
Central Moves has seen an increase in popularity with Balham over the recent years and has become a popular place to live, there are lots of young professionals looking to upsize from flat to house, or with about to start a bigger family. Five-bedroom family houses in the Nightingale Triangle go for £1.2 or  £1.3 million. Prices of flats have roughly doubled over the past decade, with the cost of a one-bedroom property now £250,000- £300,000.

Living in Clapham London

Clapham is a district of South London within the London Boroughs of Lambeth and Wandsworth. Clapham’s relative proximity to traditionally expensive areas of central London, which had become increasingly unaffordable to all but the wealthy during the course of the 1980s and 1990s, led to an increase in the number of middle class people living in Clapham. Today the area is in general an affluent place, although itsprofessional residents often live relatively close to significant pockets of social housing. It is multicultural with overseas (Irish, African, Caribbean, South-American, European, Australian and North-American) residents and people of BME origin, and it has a vibrant gay community.
