We have in-depth experience of buying, selling and the management of country houses, estates and farms including those with tenant farmers.

International clients

An increasing number of our international clients are choosing to buy homes in the UK  - both in London and other major cities and in the countryside. We provide tailored advice regarding the issues that may arise when relocating or investing in high value property in the UK, including the complex but very important issue of tax structuring.  We are experts in advising on all types of home, from period London mansions to new build apartments and rural estates.
