Indian investors are making more and more investment in the London property market, overtaking Arab buyers to become the second largest purchasers.

As India’s economy grows, more and more Indian nationals are looking to London as a safe property investment. Indeed, Indians have overtaken Arab Investors as the second largest foreign investors in the London Property Market. Changes to the Liberalised Remittance Scheme in India in 2015 have been taken advantage of by buyers who are now able to bring even more money into the UK.

This choice to invest in London Property reflects the confidence which investors have in the capital, despite fears over Brexit. With many landmark purchases in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and the City of Westminster. Indian buyers now account for 22% of prime London purchases in the year 2016-17, having accounted for just 5% two years ago. This rapid rise reflects the level of trust which increasingly affluent Indians have in London and the London Property Market.

Here at Robert Irving Burns we have foreign investors of every nationality and have seen many different property trends in London with our over 50 years experience of the market. We look forward to welcoming even more foreign investors to London and showing them the best our fantastic city has to offer.
