‘Priorities for overseas buyers investing in the UK market remain: value; asset protection; education; and the rule of law,’ says Edmund Fetherston-Dilke, a partner at the firm, whose landed estates clients include the Duchies of Lancaster and Cornwall. In the past year, he has acted on transactions in relation to high-value London properties and country houses and estates. Fetherston-Dilke also sees ‘more residential transactions where the shares are bought in the entity holding the property’, which can lead to ‘eye-watering tax and cross jurisdictional work’. No stranger to deals in the £10-20 million range, he is noted for his ‘willingness to help and achieve a workable solution at a cost-effective rate’.
