Property Week and Residential Land produce a guide to investing in prime London residential property
As the prime London residential property market continues to be a safe haven for investors across the world, Residential Land and Property Week have collaborated to create an insiders guide to investing in Prime central London.
Thank you to Property Week for another successful RESI Conference! The weather in Wales was beautiful and everyone seemed in a buoyant mood.
Yet again, it seemed to be the busiest RESI to date, with the usual gathering of the great and the good of the residential property world.

The speakers were excellent and clearly outlined the main issues of the day; poor medium term economic prospects, a shortage of debt both at corporate and personal levels, and ongoing planning regime challenges.
Residential Land is extremely proud to have won Landlord of the Year at the inaugural RESI Awards.
The RESI Awards, an extension of the Property Week RESI Conference, is the first event of its kind to recognise excellence in residential property. The awards evening was a huge success, with leading figures from the industry coming together to reward the achievements of those involved in all aspects of residential property.
Property Week has announced the finalists for the RESI Awards which are being held at the InterContinental London on Tuesday 15 May 2012. From the 14 categories, Residential Land are thrilled to have been shortlisted for 2 of the awards – Deal of the Year and Landlord of the Year.
Our nomination for Deal of the year recognises our recent joint venture partnership with Apollo Global Real Estate Management and Ivanhoe Cambridge.
We are also delighted to be nominated for Landlord of the Year. Residential Land takes our responsibilities to our tenants very seriously, so we are proud to be recognised in the same category alongside other landlords such as Wellcome Trust and Williams Pears Group.
Residential Land CEO Bruce Ritchie has also been shortlisted for Personality of the Year against other industry leaders such as Tony Pidgley and Nick Candy.
Bruce Ritchie, CEO of Residential Land was recently filmed by Property Week discussing his thoughts about the upcoming RESI Awards.
In the video below, Bruce shares his thoughts on the launch of the first annual RESI Awards, taking place in London on 15th May 2012. The video also features Giles Barrie, Property Week Editor-in-Chief and Stephan Miles-Brown, Head of Residential Development at Knight Frank.
Bruce Ritchie, CEO of Residential Land: “From my point of view, having supported RESI in itself over the last 5 years since its inauguration, having enjoyed sponsoring and being involved in the debating and networking that comes with that event, the next logical progression would be some form of entertaining event which would give us the opportunity to recognise people that have done well. But I really think it’s a natural progression of the way residential is becoming seen as an asset class in its own, as an institutional investable class of its own, so to actually get our own annual event to celebrate that, is an important thing and I think its great Property Week has stood forward and done that and I’m looking forward to it.”
