You know - house prices, that were allegedly being driven up because of mass-uncontrolled immigration.

Ah, well. Another one bites the dust.
Supply and demand is unchanged, I'm sure. After all, it's unlikely that many new houses have been built this year. Nor is the problem going to suddenly get fixed but it is likely to get less severe with decreased numbers of immigrants. But post Brexit more work to manage and control immigration needs to be done, but the signs in that regard are currently not looking good. Maybe a new political party is needed to put that in place. But I've always said Brexit first and then political reform. But at least the sky hasn't fallen like your lot were predicting.

The UK is about to pay people to take out a mortgage, so the higher the price, the more you get paid. Maybe prices will increase more. I want one of these mortgages.

https://www.msn.com/en-gb/money/news...es/ar-BB19tXyc

A negative-rate mortgage means the interest bill is credited to the borrower’s account rather than debited, reducing the sum borrowed over time. This is in contrast to loans offered by banks and building societies 25 years ago, when the interest rate ranged between 5% and 8% and often meant paying back twice as much over the loan period.

The biggest issues aren't going to bite until the WA has ended without a deal... A deal would mitigate some of the effects, depending on what gets included.

Sounds like something I'd say in fairness.

Just curious[ how does Brexit change the UK;s ability to set its own immigration rules ?

There are a variety of reasons for high house prices, for what reason is there a connection between leaving the EU and local permitting regulations ?

So the only mention of World War III came from Boris Johnson.

Is that what you're trying to say? Because that's what that article says.

Quick reminder.

We are currently officially out of the EU but in a transition period in which nothing has changed in practice day-to-day.

We will review the relative positions of sky and earth after the new phase starts in January, and continue to reflect on the matter in the ensuing years. Not, as someone has already pointed out, that it was ever claimed that it would fall in. However, the prospects of various things, including separation of the United Kingdom, do look a good deal more realistic now than they did back in 2016 - a matter which appears to only occasion a shrug of the shoulders and some inflammatory pronouncements on fellow citizens from your lot, which is pretty much par for the course when it comes to any sort of acknowledgement that there will inevitably be downsides.

It no longer has to accept unlimited immigration from the EU.

So if that is down in 2020 but house prices rising how much does movement from the EU have real effect on house prices ?

Who is going to do the work Brits won't do ?

I refer you to post #22531

Wages will have to rise until Brits consider the work worthwhile to do.

Are you aware of the challenges of getting planning permission in the UK ? If you are how will Brexit make it substantially make it easier to build in the UK?

So if wages supposedly rise significantly how will the end price inflation be a benefit ? Then to get people living off benefits to move to where jobs are, How much do wages for picking strawberries need to rise- to 20 or 30 pounds an hour ? And what about labor problems or associated costs dealing with Brits unwilling to accept existing work conditions ? What will employer do if can't find a Brit to do a job but doesn't have time to wait for a visa to be approved ?

I agree there will be some upward pressure on wages- though if the economy declines there will be downward pressure.
