Understanding property investment

Historically, the London property market has offered excellent potential for investment. It is the top city in the country for attracting overseas investors, and UK-based investors also see London as a secure option. Both the commercial and residential sectors tend to perform well in terms of rental income and capital appreciation and thus deliver a good return on investment.

However, to make profitable investments in the London real estate market, you need to understand its complexities. Both prices and yields depend on the type of investment scheme and area. Office, industrial, retail, student and residential properties all have different dynamics, and factors such as accessibility to public transport, parking availability, zoning restrictions and nearby amenities can greatly influence the investment potential of a property.

As specialists in the London real estate market, our property investment solicitors are here to help you secure quality real estate investments that stack up against your financial objectives.

Our property investment services

Our property investment solicitors act for institutional investors, real estate funds, entrepreneurs, private individuals and family investment vehicles. We have a full range of services to support you at every stage of your investment journey.

Due diligence and investment analysis

The success of your investment is largely determined by how it stacks up financially. Our commercial property team can support you well in advance of a purchase, conducting in-depth legal checks to help you understand the risks and opportunities and uncover any “hidden” restrictions that might undermine the potential returns of a property investment.

Property acquisition and sales

We can assist you with buying and selling properties of all kinds, including:

  • Due diligence on legal titles and occupational leases
  • Advice on commercial property finance to fund a commercial property investment
  • Negotiating sale and purchase contracts and ancillary documentation
  • Forward funding and forward sale agreements
  • Advice on the VAT, capital allowances and Stamp Duty Land Tax liabilities connected with the transaction
  • Structuring transactions, including setting up of special purpose vehicles to acquire property
  • Portfolio acquisitions and disposals

Lease and tenancy agreements

Our team can assist you with all aspects of leasing and tenancy agreements, ensuring that the commercial leases you put in place protect the property’s investment value and your long-term interests.

Property management

We can handle all types of property management issues, including consents for dealings, refurbishments or alterations, to ensure your commercial lease relationships run smoothly and are compliant with the law.
