Holiday homes and buy-to-let

Many individuals and families want to invest their wealth in property, either as buy-to-let investments, or as holiday homes to produce an attractive rental income with the potential for the value of the property to grow in real terms over time.

Keys to success include doing your homework so you understand the real, long-term costs of ownership and seeking expert legal advice before you make a commitment.

Our experienced team know the opportunities and possible pitfalls to look out for. We can advise you on issues such as tenancy agreements and terms and conditions for holiday letting. 

We are experts in landlord and tenant law so can help you to understand both your rights as a landlord and your responsibilities to tenants and guests. 

With holiday lets and buy-to-let properties, different legal requirements apply from buying your own home, so you need to have an expert solicitor on hand with a strong track record and the relevant knowledge and experience to guide you.

We recognise that no two cases are alike, so we take time to get to know you and understand your circumstances and aspirations so that we can advise you most effectively, as we have done with generations of clients over some two centuries.


Examples of our work:

Acting for the purchase of a House in Multiple Occupation (HMO).  We acted for the purchasers of a property let to students, approving the letting arrangements, ensuring that the necessary planning consents were in place and liaising with the mortgage lenders to satisfy their requirements to bring the purchase to completion.
