Real estate surveyors’ body RICS has called for the UK’s real estate and construction sectors to push ahead with projects which have stalled in the months ahead of the EU Referendum.

The organization says that the UK government, and the administrations of the country’s devolved nations – Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland – must ensure that the property market is protected.

It also says that, while negotiations for Brexit are ongoing, the real estate industry must continue to address supply issues.

“Projects or property transactions which were delayed, shelved or postponed due to the uncertainty surrounding the referendum must be given the confidence and security to begin to move again,” the RICS statement reads.
