Blip or change of trend ?

Telegraph: Unprecedented in recent times': Rents across the UK set to fall this year

Rents have been falling in London and the south-east due to the surge in properties hitting the market after landlords purchased them before April to avoid a hike in stamp duty for buy-to-let homes. Now this decline may reach the rest of the country.

Does not resolve the fundamental issue

Telegraph: 14 New garden towns and villages to provide 200,000 homes to ease housing shortage

With free movement of people, you could build 100 new towns and it would just cause more people to come, particularly with the Eurozone having porous borders to the middle east and Africa, bringing in unvetted people, many of whom are illiterate and incapable of supporting themselves and their families. Of course, few of them will be able to afford any of these new houses. Fine, have lots coming in, but at least work out how many homes we have and can build and be in a position to plan for not only homes but schools, hospitals, jobs, etc!!
