Over the last decade, thousands of people have sold their London properties to fund a move to quieter surroundings. At times, the pace of living in the capital can get too much. With the excellent transport links, it’s still possible to live in a neighbouring county and visit London. People often commute to work every day from places like Guildford with a travel time of an hour each way.
However, there are lots of excellent reasons to retain your property in London rather than selling up. It’s a growing trend amount ex-Londoners to keep one foot in London, at least on the property ladder. Many people are retaining their houses and apartments and buying a second home or renting.
