Flat Sales and Purchases

Housing shortages have resulted in the need for the construction of more homes. To meet this need there has been great pressure placed on developers and planning controllers to ensure that maximum use of sites takes place. This has often resulted in purpose built flats being constructed.

We are able to advise our clients on the purchase of properties converted into flats or purpose built modern properties.
