A Brexit delay would weigh more on investment and British growth

UK households and businesses adopt a wait-and-see attitude due to Brexit fears and the lack of visibility surrounding UK exit conditions from the European Union. Housing sales expectations for the next 3 months are thus on record lows according to the latest RICS (Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors) residential market survey. A postponement of the Brexit date would prolong this period of uncertainty and weigh more heavily on UK investment and growth.
