London Offices Snapshot January 2021

In this month’s London Offices Snapshot, we highlight:


  • Ongoing uncertainty is exacerbating limited occupier demand for office space, as decisions continue to be put on hold.
  • Tenant release space is still coming to the market as occupiers attempt to offset overheads and review current working practices.
  • While headline rents remain stable for the time being, we expect inevitable downward pressure as 2021 progresses, with non-prime rents falling by 7.0-8.5%
  • We do anticipate a flight to quality, as best in class buildings appeal to occupiers who want to create the safest environment for their staff. Do not rule out healthy competition for prime stock in H2 2021.
  • Price volatility, was not a feature of the market in 2020.  We still believe there is scope for yield compression for the long income segment of the market during the course of 2021.
