Planning Foreign Property

Anyone buying property abroad, whether as a holiday home or an investment opportunity, should consider instructing a UK solicitor to minimise the risks of future problems.

Our experienced Foreign Property solicitors provide specialist and friendly advice at what would normally be a stressful time. If you’re buying your dream home overseas, we are here to try to make sure that your whole experience is as enjoyable as possible – from the moment you decide to buy, right through to the time you spend at the property long after our work is finished.

IMPORTANT: Don’t sign any contract without seeking legal advice first. Once the contract is signed, you could be bound by it even if the terms are unfair or unsafe.

There have been many horror stories of people buying their dream homes only to later find they do not even own the property, there are debts registered against it or it was built without planning permission. If this happens to you and you’ve arranged everything yourself, it can be difficult to know where to turn. Avoid this by instructing solicitors who can remove the stress by explaining the purchase procedure to you in terms that you understand.

We check title to the land and ensure that all necessary permissions and licences have been correctly obtained, review the preliminary contract, consider whether amendments are needed in order to safeguard your interests and review the final conveyance documentation before legal title is passed to you. In addition to our fixed fee purchase service we advise on all aspects of buying and selling overseas property.
