Buying and selling investment property.
Buying property is a popular investment for those looking to invest for the long term. We work with landlords, developers and buy-to-let owners to help them build a watertight property investment portfolio.
We also act for those buying second homes or holiday properties. We are on hand to advise throughout your property ownership and provide ongoing legal help, to include the drafting of rental agreements and leases and to give advice in respect of tenancies.
Expert and insightful commercial advice
Whether you are buying your first buy-to-let property or you already have a substantial portfolio, our expertise allows us to work proactively to ensure that any deadlines are met and that your purchase proceeds smoothly.
We’ll represent you throughout any sale or purchase, keeping you updated and ensuring that you have all the information you need to make your investment decisions. We’ll report to you regularly, so that you don’t have to wait for details about any property you are buying, and we’ll make sure that we are available to answer any questions you may have. Our online conveyancing portal allows you to access documents and monitor progress from wherever you are, ensuring you never feel out of the loop.
Investing in buy-to-let property
Many people are turning to property as a solid investment for the future. At Blaser Mills Law we’ll help you navigate your legal and financial obligations to ensure your purchase not only goes smoothly but that it is a sound investment.
As well as the standard property purchase procedure, which is set out in more detail here, buying an investment property involves additional legal considerations.
We ensure that your buy-to-let property can be used in the way that you wish, for instance, that an investment flat can be rented out or a house can be used as a bed and breakfast establishment.
If you are obtaining buy-to-let finance, your lender will have a large number of conditions and requirements which they will need you to comply with. As your legal adviser, we will be able to go through every detail and sign them off as needed.
With regard to leasehold property, we will carefully check your lease to ensure that you have the appropriate rights and advise you of any notices that will need to be served if you rent the property out. We are also able to deal with lease renewals or extensions.
Support after completing an investment property purchase
Our role as legal adviser often continues after a purchase is completed. We draw up documents such as tenancy agreements and we can advise on Capital Gains Tax and Inheritance Tax implications, which should always be taken into account when investing in property.
We also act on behalf of developers who buy property to convert into flats. We advise on matters of planning and environmental law and ensure that all of the legal permissions are in place to allow the development to go ahead without hindrance or objection.
We deal with sales of investment property and we work proactively so that these are completed quickly and without hitch to enable you to move invested funds as needed.
