“They are a professional, switched on outfit”

We act for a wide range of investors on the acquisition, management, funding and sale of investment property in Central London and across the country.
We go to great lengths to understand our client’s investment strategies, and then apply them in our due diligence and the structuring of the investment. Some of our clients are family-held structures focusing on long-term income. Some are funds and joint ventures with fixed-term business plans, who may be comfortable with acquiring less than investment-grade product, but with the possibility of improvement via active asset management. Some are overseas investors, who may seek capital preservation above all else, but are unfamiliar with the process here, so look to us for support and guidance, and for the optimum structuring of their assets.
We are highly skilled in identifying and then rectifying issues on purchase due diligence. We use our expertise on property development matters to create new let investments that can be traded quickly and efficiently in a competitive market for top-quality assets.
We work with our finance team to negotiate investment acquisition finance or refinance that allows our clients maximum flexibility in the day to day management of their assets.
