Dealing with property law for the past 17 years I have been a first-hand witness to the rollercoaster that is the property market. The housing price boom in 2006/2007, the crash in 2008 and the recession in the years that followed. But in 2020 a global pandemic had an effect on the housing market that I (and most people) did not expect.
