A deft hand at complex deals involving shared ownership, auction sales, portfolio purchases, tenancy and planning issues, Mishcon de Reya’s residential property partner James Liffen is noticing a ‘lot more positivity’ in the market since the election.

‘Stability helps,’ he tells Spear’s. ‘We now have a government with a clear majority, and whatever anyone’s view on that is, it means we’ve got a hopefully reasonably stable period coming up.’ HNW clients, he adds, have ‘seen that this is a good time to invest in the London market’.

Liffen is cautiously optimistic. ‘I’m not full-on bullish, but I think we can feel positive about the year ahead,’ he says.
