Hope Capital's CEO comments on the CML's latest figures
Thursday, 15 June 2017
Jonathan Sealey, CEO at Hope Capital, says: “In light of the snap general election announcement in mid-April, it’s no surprise that home buyer activity in April was down on the previous month, as uncertainty and instability once again plagued the market. Understandably many buyers and sellers adopted the wait and see approach. However, let’s not forget that these figures are still being affected by the weakness in the market following last year’s stamp duty changes. 
Comment: IoD Study, Hung parliament sinks business confidence
Monday, 12 June 2017
“After the surprising election result, political and economic uncertainty in the UK has risen considerably. The election outcome looks set to further complicate the process of negotiating the UK’s departure from the EU, as the government only has a narrow majority in parliament – and even this looks vulnerable in the context of Conservative MPs’ widely differing views on post-Brexit UK-EU relations. Given the backdrop of an already slowing economy (the UK posted the lowest real GDP growth of all 28 EU economies in Q1 2017), it is not surprising that businesses are beginning to express a lack of confidence. We believe it’s highly unlikely that the first round of Brexit talks between the British government and the EU (scheduled for 19/20 June) will deliver more clarity or significant results. This means that companies will have to wait even longer to assess the impact of these negotiations on their business.

Hope Capital's Jonathan Sealey comments on Theresa May's deal with DUP
Monday, 12 June 2017
Jonathan Sealey, CEO at Hope Capital, says: “To say that a hung parliament is not what anyone wanted is true.  Everything is up in the air again, with the stability that Theresa May was looking for from this election a distant wish.  As she heads to the Palace this afternoon we have to wonder how tenable her plans to use support from the DUP can be.
Benson Hersch, CEO of the ASTL comments on the election result
Monday, 12 June 2017
Benson Hersch, CEO of the ASTL says, “As usual, markets hate uncertainty and the result appears to have made everything even more uncertain. This will not help the property nor the economy as a whole. It is likely that this will throw into doubt the government’s plans to implement the long-awaited housing white paper which disappeared from the scene since it was published back in February.
