Residential real estate
Investing in real estate is about more than acquiring property. It's the heart of your business. It's a sanctuary for your family. It's a foundation for a better future.
Many lawyers can handle the paperwork, but at Withers we listen to your unique concerns and craft a comprehensive approach to your real estate requirements. ‘Working with our tax team we will ensure your real estate investment is structured in the most tax efficient manner. This is particularly important when buying internationally, ‘ says Henry Stuart, partner in the UK residential real estate team. With decades of experience acting for successful private individuals and families, we also offer the same bespoke service to businesses and institutional investors.
Unparalleled knowledge and experience
We have completed commercial, residential and non-profit deals for some of the most prominent individuals and institutions in the world. Whether we’re advising a tenth-generation landowner in England, financing an international school in its expansion in Asia, helping a fund acquire a resort in Australia or structuring an investment in a mixed-use development in San Francisco, our team are discreet, cost-conscious and forward thinking, spotting potential pitfalls before anyone else.
Our strong relationships with institutional investors, financial institutions, surveyors and other industry professionals are important to us. Many of our landed estate clients have relied on our advice for generations. But we also excel at explaining the intricacies of our markets to successful people who may be making their first foray into real estate investment.
High profile projects
Having acted in high-profile projects around the world, for clients including Yale University, Marriott Hotels, Great Ormond Street Hospital and the fashion brand MaxMara, our results speak for themselves. ‘At the end of the day it’s achieving something that’s really tangible’, explains construction partner Julie Teal. ‘It is rewarding not just for the lawyers, but for the client because they get the product they were looking for at the right cost. We give them a sense of control and the tools to do it right’.
