The UK is in a strong position in terms of its property market,
according to an expert in the industry.

well-placed to recover quickly.
Mr Teacher said: "In terms of real estate, we are in a good place

Two of Britain's biggest property developers - Land Securities and
The British Land Company - commented that the property sector was
showing the first signs of an upturn when they released their
half-yearly financial results in September 2009.
