Commenting on UK GDP growing by 0.7% and in the wake of Article 50 being triggered
Monday, 03 April 2017
Commenting on UK GDP growing by 0.7% in Q4 2016 and in the wake of Article 50 being triggered, Agate Freimane, Senior Investment Director at BrickVest, said: “Since the Brexit vote, the Bank of England has cut interest rates and boosted quantitative easing. The latest GDP growth and inflation numbers show signs that these measures have worked and if this trend continues, the Bank of England will start to raise interest rates, which is likely to have a negative impact on real estate. Higher inflation means higher construction costs, leading to an increase in real estate prices. However since Brexit, the demand for real estate has softened and it is unlikely that developers will immediately pass on the higher inflationary costs to the end customer.

Comment: Bank of England figures
Wednesday, 29 March 2017
Richard Pike, sales and marketing director at Phoebus Software Limited says, “The fact that lending has dropped for the first time since August could indicate uncertainty due to many factors including Brexit and how it will affect the economy. Lending is still fundamentally strong, but in an environment  of uncertainty both in the UK and more globally, it will be interesting how these factors transpire into lending figures. Consumer sentiment will inevitably go up and down and so a take up of longer term fixed rates can be expected. Ultimately the underlying trend will be an upward one, as demand for people to buy housing or re-mortgage to secure a rate is met.” 
Comment: Brexit & Article 50: A deal that will change the course of the UK
Wednesday, 29 March 2017
“Theresa May’s plans to start Britain’s withdrawal process from the EU will set off a series of tough negotiations. The complexity of Brexit poses unique challenges, with overall sentiment and fiscal numbers continuing to paint a mixed picture: although forward-looking indicators are still reasonably strong, they have deteriorated since the start of the year and, simultaneously, inflation has registered its highest reading since Q3 2013. In this vein, it’s far too early to realistically assess the potential political and economic impact of Brexit – a real bone of contention will be the controversial departure bill, which may well see the UK pay in excess of £60 billion to officially leave the EU. With negotiations about future EU-UK trade relations expected to take longer than the two years available, it is likely that an interim agreement will have to be struck, and we do not expect full independence to be secured until the 2020s at the earliest.
