Buying & selling

Buying and selling landed property of all descriptions is a core focus of our practice. We have an enthusiastic team of lawyers with a practical, hands-on approach to the transaction process. We also have a deep understanding of the complex legal and business issues surrounding ownership and management of landed estates, because we deal with them every day. Much of our estates work is UK-based, but given the firm's status as a leading international player with a broad base of clients worldwide, it's unsurprising that our landed estates practice has built up a sizeable body of estate work in many other countries.

We act for traditional estate owners where the land has been in the family for generations, UK-based entrepreneurs looking to buy a country property for the first time, and international buyers.
