Latest Property News from Barnes and Barnes October 2021

As property experts, we like to keep up to date with all that’s going on in the market and the latest London property news, but why keep this to ourselves?  So each quarter, we will share some of the most interesting stories and ideas that we come across to inspire you and your property dreams, as well as our own latest blogs and news. 

A View From Grant Barnes

With the end of the stamp duty holiday last month many Londoners are now in new homes and, along with those who decided to stay put, are turning their attention to house renovations and extensions. A recent survey by Selina Advance found that two million London homeowners, that’s more than 60%, are planning home improvements over the next year.

With this in mind, we have created a handy guide to party walls, a complex subject that affects a number of house renovations. Download the guide using the link in this bulletin and if you need further advice, our party wall experts are on hand to take you through the process.

Other news from the London property scene included in this edition – what’s happening to the asking price of properties, what you can do if you have noisy builders next door and we’ve also included a stunning castle in Belsize Park to inspire your property dreams.

With best wishes,
