Residential Property (Real Estate)

Residential Property

The UK left the EU on 31 January 2020. A transition period, during which EU laws continue to apply in the UK, is due to end on 31 December 2020. The UK/EU Withdrawal Agreement sets out transitional arrangements and negotiations for the future UK/EU relationship are ongoing.

Our Residential Property Group is one of the largest dedicated residential property practices in London. We specialise in prime UK residential property transactions both in the capital and the surrounding areas.

Our clients include private individuals, banks, corporates and investment funds. To find commercial solutions for them we work with the sector’s most important players such as agents, private estates and developers. Satisfying our clients’ objectives involves tight deadlines, complicated structures and being highly responsive.

Understanding your brief is key: we appreciate that each situation is different with its own set of priorities. Close working relationships with our colleagues in Planning, Construction, Dispute Resolution, Immigration and Tax means that we do not simply present a list of options but come with a decisive recommendation about the best and most complete course of action.

The results speak for themselves: a reputation as a leading residential practice with repeat business from clients and intermediaries and two members of the department, including the head of department James Liffen, are listed in the top six residential property lawyers in the UK by Spears.
