Our Residential Real Estate department advises clients on all aspects involved in the sale and purchase of prime central London property.

Howard Kennedy has a leading residential real estate department with repeat referrals from leading estate agents, buying agents, financial intermediaries and clients. We have experience, expertise and knowledge of the market and the deal process involved.

We are proactive, commercial and efficient and always keep our clients informed throughout the conveyancing process.

We provide clear and straightforward advice to our clients so that they fully understand the legal consequences and so are able to make an informed decision if they buy or sell a property.

We regularly support clients in residential and investment property sales and purchases, leasehold enfranchisement, planning considerations, and construction and building contracts.

Additionally, we are experts in handling substantial tax-driven property transactions for wealthy domestic and international individuals, companies, and trustees.

We work closely with our international tax and wealth structuring team to ensure that the sale and purchase of residential property are conducted in a tax efficient way, especially for non-domiciled or non-resident clients.
