Property in the UK continues to deliver strong returns for investors. Property Wire reports that ‘the UK’s commercial property market is likely to see a record breaking year with deal volumes at the end of the third quarter already over 50 billion. If, as anticipated, volumes in the fourth quarter of 2015 follow the patterns from previous years in 2013 and 2014, investment in the UK commercial market this year will break the £70 billion barrier for the first time’. Although this is great news, with the property market it is always wise to be aware of any risks that may be lying ahead that could affect how the market will perform in the future.
Projecting into 2016 there are two main factors which might pose a risk to the commercial property market; UK interest rates and the UK’s membership status within the EU. We are used to living with the uncertainty around interest rates but it is interesting to acknowledge that the upcoming debate around the UK’s EU membership is casting some uncertainty into investing in the commercial property market. This uncertainty may grow as the debate moves forward.
