Infection rates in Geneva will be well above 10% now, also suggesting a second wave there is likely to be less severe - like the UK, New York and Sweden. Https://lenews.ch/2020/05/11/recent-testing-suggests-9-7-of-geneva-has-had-coronavirus/ Lebanon has had to lock down again, but they avoided the first wave. Deaths per million population there stand at only 4 versus 482 for the UK. They will have not have 10%+ immunity. Probably more like only 1%. Https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-52637725 So we could be over the worst for the virus in the UK but what about the housing market's prospects if we slowly unlock? Https://moneyfacts.co.uk/news/mortgages/coronavirus-impact-delays-mortgage-rate-reductions/ Our research for the period of 11 March to 14 April shows that average mortgage rates for all loan-to-value (LTV) ranges, all interest rate types and all deal terms, have reduced from an overall average of 2.59% to 2.41%.

They said in yesterday's Covid-19 press briefing that antibody tests showed London had 10% positive infections 5 weeks ago. Social spacing and rising immunity of that level would not stop a second wave but it would limit its size to something rather smaller than the first. Given the results suggest the first lockdown was excessively sharp, restrictions for a second wave should be much lighter. It might even just consist of making everyone wear masks now we have them. But, given this government so far, who knows? (Germany has had two spikes that weren't. They were most likely just statistical quirks in a dodgy R number on the back of dodgy swab testing regimes. There's too much error in swab testing to generate accurate data (so why are we still trying to?). The clue is when they say the UK's R on Sunday was somewhere between 0.5 and 0.9. = we don't really know if the compass on this ship is working so keep following that seagull.)

Dominic Raab has warned that the UK would have to endure a second lockdown if it eases current restrictions too early. Speaking at today’s press conference, the Foreign Secretary said: ‘A second spike would be harmful to public health and it would result in many more deaths from Covid-19, that itself would lead to a second lockdown inflicting further prolonged economic pain on the country. ‘ Quoting Bank of England governor Andrew Bailey, he said this wouldn’t just be ‘economically dangerous’, but would ‘inflict a serious blow to public confidence.’ He said a second spike was not a ‘theoretical risk’, pointing to figures from Germany suggesting cases have risen since Chancellor Angela Merkel has losened lockdown. https://metro.co.uk/2020/04/29/government-warns-risk-second-lockdown-ease-off-early-12629826/

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/property/uk/property-market-set-reopen-lockdown-rules-eased-home-buyers/ The housing market has been given the green light to reopen after the Government announced it would lift the ban on property viewings and valuations taking place. From Wednesday May 13, people will be allowed to travel to visit estate agents, letting agents or show homes. House buyers will also be permitted to view residential properties they wish to buy or rent.

Dominic Agace, Chief Executive of Winkworth, says “The agents at Winkworth are continuing to work from home and are using virtual viewings and video appraisals to keep business moving. However, the key to keeping the second-hand and new build homes markets active is for banks to allow valuers to go back to work to allow mortgages to progress. This could be done with strict social distancing, hygiene and wearing of masks and other protective clothing rules in place. The Government needs to consider this as a priority.” hxxps://thenegotiator.co.uk/boris-plan-published-today-ignores-property-industry/

You sure about that Aleman, have another think and read Estate agents and letting agents Agents fall under the non-essential retail category, according to the guidelines. While they can continue to carry out business remotely at present, they must also stick to social distancing measures. Many are operating on reduced staff numbers, speaking with clients via phone, email and other means. However, as mentioned above, this sector is likely to fall under the ‘Step Two’ bracket. This means changes could be on their way from 1st June. The government is due to announce which non-essential retailers will be first to reopen when the day comes. Of course, many in the industry are calling for estate agents to be a priority. Https://www.buyassociation.co.uk/2020/05/12/what-boris-new-lockdown-guidance-means-for-uk-housing-market/

The new regulation confirms that garden centres can open - and that people can visit estate agents and view homes they want to buy or rent.

A return of capital is taxed as a reduction in your purchase price so you get a bigger capital gain when you sell. So nothing to pay until then (and nothing if you manage to stay within allowances at that time).

Aleman, Good spot re the last. I wonder how many small shareholders got that correct in their tax returns ! Indeed, what is the arithmetic for that (!) ?

I agree with you, it's a great little company, but should point out a small error. The 9p per share payment was a return of capital and not a special dividend, and so is taxed differently.

Good results today. I love this company and have held for several years. It plods along nicely and pays a dividend 4 times a year. It even pays special divis if it makes too much cash.... What's not to like?

House prices pick up slightly as London activity increases. Https://www.theguardian.com/money/2019/dec/06/uk-house-prices-rise-despite-uncertainty-over-brexit-and-election Also from the Guardian: Lucy Pendleton of estate agents James Pendleton: “Contributing to the pick up in the annual pace of growth is the London market, which has started to bubble away again. “In the capital, a big jump in the number of sales going to best-and-final offers is going hand in hand with increasing footfall through front doors as buyers’ appetites return.

ONS has average London house price jumping from £457k in May to £473k in September, which backs up comments by some estate agents saying there was signs of a bit more interest in the capital. There are signs in some regions of a summer pick up but the annual number is still weak due to falls in previous seasons that have yet to drop out.

Not bad results for a difficult market. Cash fell £0.653m but that's after a return of capital to shareholders of £1.15m. Current liabilities fell a touch and receivables were nearly flat so that's a very good showing really, in that they suggest an ability to generate slightly more than the £500k cash added over 12 months AFTER dividend and adjusting for capital return. It suggests room for a dividend rise or maybe another return of capital in a couple of years. Of course, that's if things remained the same, which they no doubt will not. Still slowly expanding the number of offices, too. Should do well if the bouncing along the bottom the housing market ever turns into a recovery. Meanwhile, seems to be generating plenty of cash from a mediocre market.

It's interesting to read that Hunters' interim profit was boosted from £857k to £1.1m by IFRS accounting changes (IFRS 16 mentioned specifically). However, their underlying operating cashflow was up about 30% anyway, so they are doing well. They raised the interim dividend 9%.

Hard to say. It certainly won't help but would it actually stifle the nascent signs of a recovery? Maybe. The RICS survey actually shows that weak prices have started to stimulate activity all across the south and rents are strong.

I would have thought woes in the City will hold back London prices..eg Deutsche Bank lay offs..most of whom unlikely to find new jobs .
