London-focused property company Capital & Counties Properties acquires the freehold interest of Tower House in the Covent Garden precinct for R1.1bn before purchaser's costs.

JSE’s largest real estate investment trust‚ Intu Properties‚ records 6% growth in earnings a share over the first six months of this year‚ pleasing the market.

Capital & Counties Properties may well have appeared fully priced after the stock had more than doubled in the previous two years, but it continues to defy gravity.

Listed property prices have seen a rapid correction over the past two weeks, although analysts say this provides opportunities for both investors and companies themselves.

Investors may still be wary of exposure to government-tenanted buildings after a number of public works leasing scandals hit the headlines last year.

Although commercial property pundits do not expect a crash in the sector following the industry’s strong run‚ some form of a correction could occur given a bond market that is unlikely to strengthen further.
