Investing in UK real estate

We can advise you on all aspects of International estate transactions into the UK from asset management, tax matters to leasehold enfranchisement.

Sectors and Services

Investing in the UK through Real Estate

What we do:

We offer a full property legal service and have highly experienced lawyers covering all aspects of UK commercial and residential real estate transactions. We also have lawyers with expertise in the more complex real estate transactions, such as forward sales/purchases, forward funding deals and leasehold enfranchisement work and so are easily able to assist with any of these deals.

We can advise on:

  • The purchase of investment property
  • On-going asset management property work
  • The purchase of redevelopment property, ensuring the necessary rights have been obtained
  • Obtaining vacant possession of a property
  • Development funding
  • Building contracts and appointments
  • Disposal of redeveloped property
  • UK real estate tax structuring

Our overseas clients also often use overseas registered companies to hold their real estate assets, particularly in the international financial centres (IFCs) and so we are well versed in dealing with trust administrators and registered agents when acting for these companies.

Increasingly, predominantly for tax savings reasons, clients are choosing to acquire the company which owns the UK real estate asset rather than purchasing the real estate asset itself and we work in conjunction with our corporate colleagues on such transactions, undertaking due diligence on the company and assessing its liabilities, and ensuring clients are suitably protected by the warranties given by the seller.
