Whilst it is necessary to instruct lawyers who are qualified to advise on the law of the country in which the property is situated, from time to time it is necessary to advise English lawyers in relation to your overseas purchases.
Perhaps you are raising money on the security of your English property, or need confirmation of UK circumstances. We will be pleased to liaise with your overseas lawyers where necessary.
Where notarisation of UK documents, or witnessing or other documents, is required, we can refer you to UK notaries for that purpose.
We can also refer you to overseas lawyers who can assist with your investments overseas.
Before committing to purchase a property overseas, we suggest that you carefully consider the local taxation rules in relation to the eventual sale of the property, and local domestic laws relating to inheritance and death duties.
