What we do
Our experienced team of proactive and enthusiastic lawyers deals with properties throughout England and Wales, with significant exposure to the London and South East market. We understand the complications and demands of buying high value town and country properties, from leasehold flats to large family homes. We are also able to assist in connection with a wide range of issues affecting private property ownership.
In addition to buying and selling new-build and established homes we deal with residential investment; mortgages and re-mortgages; putting property into joint names and other transfers of equity; tenancy agreements; equity release schemes; enfranchisement; overage arrangements; options; and property management issues.
We also provide residential support to other specialists in the firm - such as those dealing with family law - and can draw on specialist planning, construction and dispute resolution help where needed.
Our clients tend to be high net worth individuals, professionals, families, family trusts and investors from the UK and overseas.
