Morning Money: British households remain confident in the value of their homes, even after Brexit
British households remain confident in the rising value of their homes, even after the vote to leave the European Union. That's according to Knight Frank's Sentiment Report, which shows 15% of homeowners surveyed by Knight Frank believed the price of their own house had risen last month... more than the ratio who believed house prices had fallen. Grainne Gilmore, head of Knight Frank UK Residential Research joined the team to discuss further.

This is Money: The Only Way Is Essex

This is Money: The Only Way Is Essex
Once again, it's time for This is Money, in partnership with NS&I. This week, Editor Simon Lambert and Consumer Affairs Editor Lee Boyce from the Financial Website of The Year team up with Financial Broadcaster of the Year Georgie Frost, to boldly proclaim the dust settled on post-Brexit Britain. Well, sort of. With pre-Brexit employment figures, and post-Brexit CPI and RPI all out, a lot of people might be unhappy with the results. Not least as Current Accounts and Annuities are slashed, and pensions deficits and house prices continue to soar. Are we in a bit of a slump, or is this just the landscape now? We'll take you through it all, and also take a look at thousands of electricity customers being over-billed due to an Imperial legacy, and Lee Boyce waxes lyrical on the joys of living at the seaside. This is Money is presented in partnership with NS&I.
