Office property vacancy rate London (United Kingdom) 2019, by district

Vacancy rates are a measurement of unoccupied properties during a given period. Vacancy rates are a good indication of an area’s desirability and opportunity for development. High vacancy rates can indicate an economic downturn, a lack of demand or possibly that standards do not meet speculative renters’ needs. Low vacancy rates are in general considered a good thing as it means there is a good level of demand from customers, although low vacancy rates may also indicate a need for more development which is not being met.

Yields grow or decrease based on occupancy rates of the area and industry, as well as demand and confidence. In 2019, prime yields for office property in London fell below five percent.
