Foreign investment into London’s housing market

Questions have been raised about the number of newly built London homes that are sold to overseas purchasers while London is in the middle of a housing crisis. London certainly is building too few homes, but London First believes this would only be exacerbated by restricting inward investment, which finances the supply of market housing, funds the provision of social housing and supports jobs and growth in London.

To put the concerns over the number of overseas purchases in context, London First has produced a briefing note that provides some background as to why London’s housing market attracts inward investment and how this investment actually helps to increase overall housing supply for Londoners.
