Country wide the market has slowed because of fear of Brexit and especially what Carney warned of a number of predicted Mortgage increases coming up

I am not going to disagree with your opinion. There have been several articles in the press lately criticising the Stamp Duty changes. The reports lead on to say that 'older' people won't down size, freeing up millions of bed spaces due to the rises.
True, no idea. But blaming it all on BREXIT is wrong.

The UK house market is over priced IMHO. London particularly so. Some re-alignment is well overdue.
