Will COVID-19 shift real estate out of town?

With workers spending more time away from city centres, some expected that out-of-town offices could swing back into fashion. It is still early, but from the UK data, the evidence suggests that it is suburban retail, not offices, that is benefiting most from the home-working revolution.

What do the latest UK jobs data tell us?

UK employment has recovered strongly in recent quarters and is set to see further growth into 2022. This will be good news for UK offices, especially in regional cities. But with occupiers set to look beyond headcount when making their space decisions, we don’t think it will bring a turnaround in the sector.

Limited risks to DM property from Evergrande

The Evergrande crisis has made waves in financial markets this week.

Are we underestimating the global property upturn?

The most recent commercial property data have been surprisingly upbeat and have raised the possibility that the recovery could be stronger than expected. But we think investors may have run ahead of themselves and this trend is unlikely to be sustained given the weak rental outlook.

What will happen to submarket rents after COVID-19?

With more hybrid working post-pandemic, the view is that office rents will be under pressure for many years. This raises questions about which locations could be more resilient and if rents in central business districts (CBDs) will perform better than elsewhere.

Are PDRs the answer to mis-matches in supply?

New plans have extended Permitted Development Rights (PDRs) on commercial property, allowing swifter conversion to residential use. These have been cautiously welcomed, but, in our view, they do not radically shift the outlook for either residential or commercial markets. In view of the wider interest, we are also sending this UK Housing Market Update to clients of our UK Commercial Property service.
