The London population is estimated to grow by over 200,000 every year according to the Greater London Authority. To tackle the housing shortage in London the government is encouraging the much needed new developments in private and state sectors. In London there are around 170,000 homes in the planning pipe line, with the largest number in inner east London boroughs of Greenwich, Tower Hamlet and Newham.

'High housing costs are seen as a disadvantage to living in London and yet the population continues to increase every year' said Rozi Bani-Ameri founder of Easy Relocation (exclusive).

The majority of London properties are old and have undergone some major renovation scheme or some degree of interior update for marketability. By law the exterior and original architecture and material of buildings have to be preserved. Irrespective of old and emerging new constructions, the dominating factors for making an important decision about any property in London remain the same.
