Lack of supply could hold back London property market, it is suggested.

A limited drip feed of new homes to buy or rent and forthcoming tightening of mortgage lending criteria may hold back the resurgent residential market in London, it is claimed.

Demand is still outstripping supply in both sales and lettings now that the political uncertainty of the past few months is over, according to research from London estate agency Chestertons.

The firm’s latest prime residential sales report says that despite the uncertainty in the lead up to the general election at the beginning of May, the demand for new homes remained robust in the first three months of the year and continued to outstrip modestly improved supply. Demand for new-build homes from overseas also remained high.
