Investment Sales

Charles Lear & Co. has been successful in achieving excellent results when selling numerous properties to investment buyers, some of whom have been adding to their portfolio and others who are taking their first steps along the path to building one. Having acted on the sale of numerous properties to and for landlords, we have been able to build up an excellent reputation with buyers and sellers alike, many of which are looking to continue to expand their collection. What has proven particularly popular over the last few years is the sale and acquisition of large freehold buildings comprising a number of individual self-contained apartments. The benefit to having autonomy over not only all of the apartments in the building, the communal parts and ongoing maintenance without a formal service charge, external (and often a somewhat absent) freeholder and managing agent. With many of this type of sale, buyers have had the opportunity to purchase with tenants in situ, providing instant income.

We are constantly asked by prospective purchasers for blocks of apartments or bulk purchases, so if you have something that fits this criteria, we would be delighted to hear from you.
