We have a dedicated residential property team who has built a solid reputation in advising clients in the UK and overseas in all aspects of residential property transactions, including the sale and purchase of residential property, borrowing, lease extensions and leasehold enfranchisement.
We appreciate the risks and associated pressure on a transaction can be very high and our lawyer is able to guide clients through the process and ensure that the matter proceeds to completion as quickly and smoothly as possible. Our continuing commitment to excellence is reflected in our lawyer’s dedication in keeping clients regularly updated and ensuring all questions are answered. As a result of our pragmatic and reliable approach, we have built a loyal base of repeat clients, both overseas and in the UK.
Different clients have different business plans and different targets whether by sector/ asset class, geographical considerations and/or yield. We help them implement these business plans and ensure the assets are acquired for these criteria and/or whether the risk profile/price takes it outside of these parameters.
We can assist clients with the acquisition and disposal of their investment properties and securing the deal. These may be way of ‘unconditional’ cash purchases, conditional contracts (e.g. planning or landlord’s consent) and/ or subject to financing arrangements
