Services for Developers Looking to Attract Overseas Buyers and Investors

John Foster, partner and specialist in commercial property, explains how we can assist you in this area.

Are you aiming to develop and sell property to overseas investors?

The UK property market is very attractive for private investors globally. However, operating in this market can be complicated. We will make it easy for you: we will advise on the set up of marketing activity in Russia, the Middle East and Far East, and can navigate through the many complex issues that each investor and developer faces, such as money laundering and legal compliance.

Our team has extensive experience in setting up and selling development schemes on a unit-by-unit basis. This works particularly well for student accommodation, hotels and care homes.

We know and are well-known to the agents, managers, and sub-agents both in the UK and offshore, and our experienced team can manage the often complex relationships between property developers, freeholders, managing agents and investors – this means that we are good at putting deals together.

Putting the best deal together for you

Our activities have involved working with investors from Russia, China, Taiwan, India, Malaysia, Singapore, South Africa, Australia and the USA. We have a global network of contacts who can help with the unique and complex processes required by our clients to get the most from both investment and development. For example our network of selling agents – both offshore and onshore – who have access to foreign markets and to the investment and selling fairs which are such an important feature of the global marketing process, add significant value to both developers and investors. In particular, we have excellent contacts with Jersey.
