Buying or selling property in the UK from overseas can be complicated. Buyers not only need to understand the constantly evolving UK property market, but also complex tax, estates and inheritance laws spanning multiple jurisdictions.
Our residential property solicitors, some of whom are bilingual, can organise your affairs in a way that protects the interests of you and your family.
If you are an international citizen looking to buy property in the UK, we are able to guide you through each step of the complex conveyancing process, ensuring the legal requirements are taken care of for a successful transaction.
We are experienced in advising overseas residential property clients, providing tailored advice with client interests in mind from the start through to completion. Our private wealth team can assist with cross-border estate planning, inheritance tax, as well as wills and codicils.
We also cover advice in connection with the acquisition of property in companies or trusts, and the extraction of properties owned in such entities (known as de-enveloping) to minimise tax liability or the operational cost of ownership of your property.
