We focus on the acquisition, disposal and letting of high-value residential property for corporate and private clients in the UK and the rest of the world.
For whom do we act?
We have a diverse client profile, acting for ultra-high net worth individuals and wealthy families, Sovereigns, family offices, private banks, corporate and trustees on real estate matters. We also enjoy excellent relationships with the leading residential agencies, surveyors, valuers, buying agents and private banks which specialise in advising high net worth individuals.
How can we help?
In addition to sales and purchases, we also take an active role in the management of residential properties and buildings for clients and advise on a range of technical issues encountered in residential property practice. We also have experience of the regulatory and legal issues involved in secured lending in relation to the purchase of such property and are able to advise on such matters.
Naturally, we draw on the estate planning and immigration expertise of the other teams in the firm to ensure an integrated approach to questions of moving to the UK, residency for tax purposes, funding property acquisitions and, where appropriate, establishing property structures for UK domiciled and non-domiciled clients to ensure efficiency from a UK tax perspective.
Charities and real estate
We also work closely with the firm’s Philanthropy and Charities team advising charities and those who transact with charities on property-related matters in a charity law context.
