When assisting a client who is acquiring an investment property, our time is spent on the following:
- agreeing the transaction structure and documentation;
- due diligence on the title and occupancy details;
- financing arrangements and tax implications;
- reporting on commercial arrangements, for example, hotel management agreements, machinery maintenance agreements.
The acquisition of investment property by non-resident clients requires careful attention being paid to the ownership structure. In conjunction with our tax team, we are accustomed to advising clients on the most beneficial arrangements appropriate to their country of residence.
