Our team property specialists have been working with large property developers to single property owners.

It matters less what your size of investment is, our aim is ensure your business remains hurdle free.

With banks returning and insurance and pension funds seeking long term low risk investments, the sector is largely recovered but remains challenging.

Location is a key factor in determining return on investment and this can be a stumbling block as competition from both local and international markets increases.

Due to legacy supply shortages, and resulting price increases, it can also be difficult to find attractive opportunities, but residential development, retail outlets, student accommodation and hotels are all good options.

The main risk factors in the sector are due to increased regulation, which adds to operating and admin costs, and an ever-changing tax environment, which creates uncertainty – never good for an investment dependant sector.
