The bounce back in Britain’s economy from the initial shock of the Brexit vote has expanded to the country’s recruitment and housing markets, according to two surveys which previously painted a bleak outlook.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors said its monthly house price index jumped to +12 in August from July’s three-year low of +5, the first rise in six months, though still one of the lowest readings in the past year and a half.
