Special Report: Brexit: a new era for UK real estate
Published February 2021.
In this special report, we aim to make sense of Brexit’s real estate impacts with two complexities in mind. First, to disentangle the intertwined effects of Brexit and the pandemic (where sensible to do so). Second, to distinguish between short-term disruptions and long-term trends, created or accelerated by Brexit. It is easy to conflate the two. While disruptions often lead to lasting trends, sometimes time is sufficient to adapt procedures, business models and incentives. The real estate industry is nothing if not adaptable.
