Brexit impacts – lifecycle of a property development

Brexit is going to impact on our laws.  It is too early to know what the impacts will be but it is certain that there will be changes in the future.

Going forward the government may look to make changes to laws which have been enacted via the Brexit route and to domestic laws which originated in the EU.

Forward planning is essential to ensure that Brexit has the minimum possible effect on businesses and their property transactions.

The infographic highlights the points during the lifecycle of a property acquisition where Brexit could have an impact on the laws which apply.  Property transactions often arise because of business acquisitions and involve finance, procurement and other matters which affect businesses in a broader context and so the issues flagged in our infographic are of relevance beyond pure property acquisitions.
