West London is property hotspot for wealthy over-65s, study finds

Over 50,000 London pensioners are estimated to live in properties valued at over £1m. 


In Kensington and Chelsea the total value of properties over £1 million owned by pensioners was found to be a whopping £45 billion, with Westminster coming in second place at £24 billion, with the total for London amounting to over £127 billion 

A total of almost 52,000 people over the age of 65 in London were found to live in property with a price-tag of over £1 million. The only boroughs where over-65s did not own such high value properties were Barking and Dagenham and Newham.  

Data revealed by The Telegraph puts the combined property wealth of British Pensioners at £926 billion. The data, provided by CACI, provides stark contrast to the 20% drop in home ownership in under-45s.
