The conveyancing process does not differ between the purchase or sale of your main residence and one that is an investment or second home. However there are additional considerations in dealing with an investment property or second home.

  • There may be Capital Gains Tax to consider on a sale
  • There may be Stamp Duty considerations 
  • If the property is leasehold there may be restrictions as to use or consent needed for sub-letting
  • If you are considering holiday lets there may be covenants in the title or the lease that impact on your plans
  • If you need to borrow you will need to have the right type of mortgage 

If you have a particular project in mind we will be happy to discuss this and guide you on the matters to consider before you make any offer or agree terms for the sale or purchase.
