Homes and property

Property in the UK is widely seen as one of the best long-term investments. This has both pros and cons for you as a property buyer. On the plus side, you can be reasonably confident that your property’s value will increase over time, barring market crashes. On the downside, such investor demand is what drives property prices so high – which can be frustrating if all you want is a nice home to live in.

Whether you’re a homeowner, landlord or property developer, you are sure to need professional advice at various points along the way. At the very least you will need a solicitor or another licensed conveyancer to oversee your purchase and/or sale. A solicitor can also advise you on the legal aspects of buying, selling or letting your property. And assuming you also want to obtain the best possible deal on your mortgage, it is very useful to engage a whole-of-market mortgage broker or suitably qualified financial adviser.
