54% of Londoners say BREXIT wont stop them from moving house or buying property


Research from Attic Self Storage reveals 97% of people in the UK do not think Brexit will be a trigger for their next move

But what are the biggest obstacles to moving house, and what is most likely to make people move?

Stress is the single biggest factor stopping people from moving home
33% say that upsizing or downsizing would be their main reason for moving
Only 22% cited mortgage affordability / rent as the main obstacle to moving
59% of people over the age of 65 do not plan to move house again

The UK housing market has been under the spotlight for the last few years, but it’s not only Brexit and house prices that are discouraging people from moving home.

At Attic Self Storage, we commissioned a Usurv survey of 3,000 residents from across the UK to find out more about what motivates people to move home. Using this original research, we have produced an infographic and article detailing some of the most interesting and unexpected findings.

For example, the fact that 54% of London’s transient population hopes to move home over the next five years may not be that surprising. However, the news that residents in three other UK regions are more concerned about the impact of Brexit on their move than Londoners are, despite London being home to more than a third of all the EU Nationals who live in the UK, probably is.
