I have extensive experience acting on investment acquisitions and disposals, working closely with colleagues from the corporate department where the transaction involves the buying or selling of an SPV, as opposed to the property itself.
The transactions with which I have been involved are in respect of all sorts of commercial and residential properties held for investment purposes, including retail parks and office accommodation, industrial estates; mixed use buildings and town centre retail and office premises.
I also work closely with members of our dedicated real estate tax team to ensure that transactions are structured so as to be as tax efficient as possible.
Examples of recent transactions with which I have been involved include: acting for an offshore investor on the real estate elements of the sale of an SPV owning prestigious and high value office premises; acting for an offshore investor on the acquisition of a mixed use building in Mayfair; acting on the acquisition of a boutique hotel in Mayfair and assisting the client in securing planning for the subsequent conversion of the building to residential use for the construction of luxury apartments.
