The UK property market will "be spurred on again"in the spring of this year, an expert has declared.

According to Luke Bennett, founder and managing director at SW19, prices are likely to begin to recover as people change their perceptions of where they want to live in 2009.

He said that every market has its "peaks and troughs", predicting that the current downturn will reach a plateau at the beginning of this year.

People will not want to stay in the same house, Mr Bennett claimed, meaning the property sector will begin to recover in "the same way it always does"as activity begins to rise.

"Historically, property in London and in England is going to increase in value, it is just picking the time,"he commented.

According to the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, the number of surveyors reporting house price falls rather than rises dropped to 76.5 per cent in November, down from 81 per cent in the previous month.ADNFCR-2002-ID-18953057-ADNFCR
