L&F Newsletter – Asset August 2020
Our latest edition of Asset is now out! Read all the latest including articles about estate sales, valuations and planning achievements from Bloomfields Chartered Town Planners.
I hope by the time you read this publication life will be getting back to some sort of normality and items that we took for granted this time last year, such as taking a holiday, going out for a meal or having a pint in the pub, will be possible again after weeks in lockdown.
I am pleased to report that, as a firm, we have been extremely busy in the residential sales and lettings department where there has been a good level of activity for new home reservations and second hand sales. Our valuation department is carrying out secured lending valuations again and we are seeing life getting back to the “new normal”.
I am ever the optimist and I hope this flurry of activity continues and we can get the economy going again. The Government is continuing with its house building programme and wants to achieve the construction of 100,000 new, affordable homes each year for key workers. There are also plans for accelerating investment in infrastructure such as schools, broadband, roads and green buses. With much-needed reforms to the planning system and the need to get the economy going again, the South East is well placed to bounce back.
