Update: August 2018 – Leisure

In just under 7 months, the UK will have officially left the EU. Nearly two years after the referendum there is still little clarity over what a post-Brexit trade deal may look like, although both sides seem to be making more positive noises as they look to resolve the impasse. The commercial property market has remained surprisingly buoyant in 2018 so far. Demand for prime stock is still strong, particularly among international investors who are less concerned by the short-term uncertainty produced by the Brexit process. Transparency and liquidity are two of the main selling points of the UK real estate investment market, led by the London market which remains the ‘gold standard’ within the global investment market.
