In March, the British property market shut for lockdown, suspending the moves of 450,000 buyers and renters, and throwing everyone involved in a purchase or sale into a painful financial limbo.
Today, the markets in Wales and Northern Ireland are still shut. The Scottish Government expects to give the green light for sales to begin again on June 18. England’s property market reopened on May 13 and has been adjusting fast to complex new guidance.
The process of buying, selling, renting and investing in property is now radically different. But the biggest shift for the market is likely still ahead, when it will have to grapple with the coming recession and the ends of both the Government’s furlough scheme and the mortgage holidays that are currently protecting one in seven households.
