How would a hard Brexit hit housebuilders? You tell us!

It was dubbed the ‘phoney Brexit’. In the three months following the EU Referendum, once the shock had worn off every report came back that business was continuing as usual. People who claimed Brexit hadn’t impacted their business forgot one vital thing – it hasn’t actually happened yet.

As soon as Theresa May hinted that divorce proceedings would begin in March 2017 investors recoiled once more and the pound plunged to a 31-year low. The question is no longer in or out; the question is will it be a ‘hard Brexit’, or ‘soft Brexit’?

A ‘hard Brexit’ entails losing access to the single market along with freedom of movement. But how would this affect the housebuilding industry’s access to finance and labour? We wondered what you thought about it; so, in collaboration with Urban Exposure, we have put together this questionnaire.

We would be very grateful if you would take the time to fill it in and help us gauge what impact a ‘hard Brexit’ might have on your industry.

Thank you
