CIH comment on EU referendum result


Commenting on the result, CIH chief executive Terrie Alafat said: "Today we know that the UK has voted to leave the European Union – at this stage the full implications for the UK and for housing organisations are unclear.

"While there is obviously a period of immediate financial uncertainty it is less likely that we will see significant policy changes straight away, given that there will be a period of time while government considers how to respond to the vote and the fact that housing policy is devolved and not directly an EU matter.

"As the situation unfolds we will continue to brief and support our members and the wider housing industry. We will also monitor any proposed policy changes carefully as and when they emerge. CIH is confident in the ability of the housing sector to respond and believes that in the meantime we must not lose our focus on ensuring we continue to do our part in addressing our national housing crisis."

What's next?

Following the results of the recent EU referendum, there are lots of questions around what the impact will be on the housing and property market in the UK. Free for CIH members, our 13 July event in London will give senior members of staff the chance to learn from CEBR's Nina Skero, an economist who leads the UK housing market forecasts and authors CEBR’s quarterly Housing Prospects report.
