Fladgate LLP has recently advised a HNW overseas investor on the £15.5m sale of a residential property in Holland Park to one of central London’s leading interior designers. The team comprised real estate partners Richard Kaufman and Daniel Rubie, corporate partner Avram Kelman and corporate associate David Baverstock.
Our real estate team is well placed to advise both domestic and international clients on tax efficient ways of owning residential real estate in the UK, ranging from central city apartments to country houses and agricultural properties. Our client base includes wealthy UK and international families, trusts, companies and offshore trustees.
In addition to advising on the purchase, disposal, funding and development of residential real estate, both freehold and leasehold, we provide a range of services relating to the acquisition and holding of real estate assets, including estate and succession considerations, inheritance tax and other property taxes, the practicalities of leasehold extensions and freehold acquisition and property development issues. We combine practical and commercial advice with a responsive approach, recognising that timing is often a critical factor in property deals. If required, we are able to guide individuals through the entire process, but are equally comfortable dealing with offshore professional administrators.
