Days of soaring house prices ‘long gone’, bank says

London has moved out of "bubble-risk" territory for the first time in four years, according to a new UBS report, which however warns that the heady days of soaring house prices in the capital - which are around 10% below their mid-2016 peak - are long gone. Claudio Saputelli, head of real estate at UBS Global Wealth Management, said: “Many households simply lack the funds required to meet the banks’ financing criteria, which we believe poses one of the biggest risks to property values in urban centres.”
