Highly regarded private practice law firm in London is seeking to take on two Residential Property Associates – one of 0 to 2 years’ PQE and the other of 3 or more years’ PQE. The team advises both domestic and international clients on buying and selling residential real estate and residential development sites in the UK and provides a range of services relating to the acquisition and holding of real estate assets. In addition, they also manage acquisitions in other foreign jurisdictions and co-ordinate advice on tax-efficient structures. Many of their clients spend substantial sums on developing and renovating their real estate portfolio and the team assists in the negotiation and appointment of designers, architects and other professionals, as well as guiding them through the complexities of obtaining the necessary permits. Where properties are to be let out (leased), they advise both landlords and tenants on issues surrounding short-term rental agreements. They provide advice to clients buying and selling family homes, city pied-à-terre, country estates and cottages, clients with international property interests, landed estate owners, residential developers, and both individual and commercial investors building up residential real estate portfolios. The team also advises on Landed Estates and the buying and selling of rural property. As well as acting on a wide range of transactions such as estates, country houses and grouse moors, they also focus on the commercial requirements of landed clients and help devise innovative solutions to problems associated with owning country land in the 21st century. Issues range from inheritance tax planning, land management issues, agricultural tenancies, boundary disputes, land development opportunities (involving leisure and tourism) and the political sensitivities relating to conservation and the environment.

This Private Property team has a high profile in both the landed estates and the London residential property market and these are fantastic opportunities for two Associates who seek excellent prospects for career progression. The roles cover a mixed caseload involving all aspects of residential and landed estates property work. The successful candidates will have a passion for the property market and more experienced candidates must be able to demonstrate a technical understanding of all elements of property law. Newly or recently-qualified candidates will have undertaken a seat in Residential Property law or, failing that, Commercial Property law, but with an interest in Residential Property matters.
