Residential property

With one of the largest dedicated Residential Property teams in the country we act for clients on all aspects of their property requirements. Our emphasis is on providing a client-focused service giving practical, relevant and technically accurate advice.

We are experienced in dealing with all aspects of residential property including:

  • leases with and without a share of freehold
  • freehold family homes
  • investment property
  • leasehold or freehold property being bought off plan and new builds.
  • landlord and tenant matters
  • block and estate management
  • mixed use buildings
  • enfranchisement – lease extensions, collective enfranchisement claims and the tenants right of first refusal.

Our expertise also covers the development, marketing and subsequent sales of central London residential assets. Built over many years and as a result of our long-term involvement in high value and high profile schemes in Central London and in prime areas across the UK, we have established relationships with the key property agents. We are skilled at adapting to various tax criteria for both developers and sophisticated buyers – often non-resident – while also being highly experienced in applying our enfranchisement expertise to draft creatively around the terms of the relevant legislation.

Our team has developed an expertise on the interaction between the many commercial and residential elements of all schemes, understanding the legal and asset management issues involved.

As part of a firm with experts in Construction, Property Litigation, Tax, Property Finance and Planning teams, we are able to provide our clients with seamless advice on any matter arising from their property requirements.
