In this video, Hayden Cameron, Partner discusses the key trends developing in the UK real estate market and considers future legal changes that will have a material ongoing impact on real estate investment in the UK.
Hayden examines the market shift towards alternative asset classes that promise more attractive returns but entail a higher degree of operational risk and transactional complexity.
He also considers the impact of the Government Covid-19 initiatives on the real estate market in the short term and the importance of ESG and sustainability initiatives in the long term. He highlights that potential new environmental legislation could have a significant impact on real estate valuations in the future and should be taken seriously by investors now.
