New affordable homes in London
Fresh figures released by the Network Housing Group, based on a new report from the London Finance Commission, shows that funds derived from stamp duty from London property sales could have the potential to deliver a 91% increase in the amount of affordable homes built in the capital each year. In 2012, a total of 8,380 affordable homes were built across London's 33 boroughs.

Banner Homes has opened a second show home at its Cherry Tree Park development in Billericay, Essex and reports that nearly two thirds of the properties at the site have been sold.

Situated close to the campus of the University of Essex in Colchester, Weston Homes' Hawkins Wharf is proving to be a popular choice for the town's large student population and with rental yields estimated at up to 7% per annum, the development has understandably attracted the attention of property investors.
