Slough has most foreign-owned properties outside London
So we’re selling them the good parts of the country then, are we?
But this is The Guardian of course, so something terrible must be happening.
The Land Registry lists 99,345 freehold or leasehold titles across England and Wales as being owned by foreign-registered businesses, including 675 within Slough’s SL postcode area.
Is that a lot or not? There’s about 25 million households in the country, what’s commercial properties on top of that, 50% again? Just very roughly you understand.
So 0.3% of British property is owned by offshore companies?
Don’t think this is much of a problem, do you?
