Our Property team provides a holistic service to its clients who are seeking to purchase a property. We assist them with the drafting, review and negotiation of preliminary agreements proposed by the sellers. The Preliminary Agreement is typically valid for three months, during which our professionals carry out any necessary legal searches and trace the seller’s title to the property to ensure that the property rightfully belongs to the seller, and that there are no liabilities attached to it. We instruct an architect to carry out all necessary checks, and we eventually draft a contract of sale, ensuring all the legal safeguards are in place.
Alternatively, clients may opt to purchase their property via companies and trusts. Our Property team work hand in hand with legal professionals in other practice groups in order to make such transactions as seamless as possible.
