How would the UK property market perform under a Labour government?

  1. The Labour Party conference has created a real stir amongst property investors with talk of an array of new charges and regulations. How do you think the UK property market would perform under an extreme socialist Labour government?

    Under Tony Blair (centre left policies) I would not have been overly concerned but under Corbyn there is going to be a massive raid on the "rich" to curry favour with socialists.

    I hear that Corbyn was talking with the EU this week - they appear to be running scared that he will try to block ANY Brexit deal. What odds on the deadline being extended and the issue being kicked into the long grass for the moment?

    The UK property market has been through far worse than a Labour government and still learned to adapt. Yes, it will be tough in the early days, but markets and investors will quickly adapt.
  5. There is a real threat to the stability of the UK government with the DUP said to be furious about Brexit and the Northern Ireland fudge. Do not be surprised to see the DUP bring down the Tory government leading to a general election. Then, voters will face the real threat of a hard left-wing government under the stewardship of Jeremy Corbyn. Or would the hardliners be pulling his strings behind-the-scenes?
