Invitation – London property market debate


The Steeple Times invites readers to a debate about the London property market at the exclusive business club 12 Hay Hill on 17th May


On Tuesday 17th May at 7pm, The Steeple Times will host its second panel debate at 12 Hay Hill in Mayfair, London. Following on from the success of our event in December about the art market, a panel chaired by Jackie Branston will discuss the London property market.


Beginning with “Is there a Dante’s Inferno coming for London’s property market?” as a question, Nick Crayson of property consultancy Crayson, national land buyer Stuart Green, “original hedge fund man” Alan Miller of the SCM Group and Andy Smith, co-founder of luxury property agents 1st Asset will debate this topic.

The debate is being hosted by The Steeple Times and 12 Hay Hill


Attendees will be able to ask questions and undoubtedly issues such as the effects of ‘Brexit’ on the property market, the ‘mansion tax’ and iceberg homes will come up. Whether estate agents should be regulated may also be discussed and strong opinions will certainly be voiced.


Tickets to the debate cost £18.50 per person and can be booked via Eventbrite by clicking here. Admittance is strictly on the basis of pre-payment only and a cash bar will operate before the event from 6.30pm and afterwards also.



Panelist Biographies

Born and brought up in Notting Hill and Holland Park, Nick worked in corporate finance before setting up what he describes as a “new type of property consultancy”.  His firm’s website states: “We don’t just see buildings. We see the human side of bricks and mortar”.

Stuart Green – National land buyer

Stuart Green is originally from Yorkshire but sources land for national house builders outside the M25. He lives in Chelsea, SW3 yet believes London’s property market is now insane and that we’re now living in a foreign country.

Alan Miller – Co-founder, SCM Group

Alan Miller terms himself a “contrarian” and has been described by The Telegraph as “Britain’s original hedge fund man”. He has a “radically different approach to looking after his clients’ money” and launched SCM Group in 2008.

    1. Some big hitters here and some people who won’t be afraid to tell it like it is. I’d like to know whether the Battersea Power Station project will even get finished. I heard people are trying to get out of the deals they signed for off-plan places. A true white elephant.

    2. London’s property market will never collapse as this international city is the best place for the super-rich to park their money. There has been a slight downward re-adjustment at the top end due to the change in Stamp Duty but it will soon start to rise once again.
