Brexit and the legal implications for businessesAlthough we now know the result is a decision to leave the EU, the uncertainty continues for the UK real estate market.

We are likely to see a short period of stunned disbelief followed by market adjustment and falling prices as potential investors slow their investment in the UK down until plans for an orderly exit are settled; hopefully then followed by an increase in inward investment taking advantage of dropping prices and a weaker pound.

Valuation in a new “Leave” world will present its challenges as valuers consider the effect of the continuing uncertainty, and some real estate sectors in particular, such as student housing or healthcare, may face an adverse impact from increasing restrictions on the free movement of people.
