Your Guide to Property Investment in the UK

Investing in a foreign country has its challenges and the UK is no exception. At IP Global, we simplify the process for you -which is why we have developed The Investor Guide series, to navigate you through to completion.

Our UK Investor Guide covers all the necessary legal and tax matters as well as the relevant acquisition and operating costs. Furthermore, you can expect guidance on the process of arranging mortgage finance as well as key information on lettings and management.

Why invest in UK real estate?

Home to one of Europe’s largest real estate markets, over the past 10 years the UK has consistently offered our property investors a strong investment case and returns.

With an extensive under-supply of housing and the gap only set to widen, buy-to-let investors are finding plenty of property investment opportunities and strong capital growth prospects in the UK. London, the iconic capital city, has always been a leading location for property investment and while it continues to be so, interest is expanding to regional cities. Leeds, Manchester and Birmingham are becoming some of the best places in the world for property investment thanks to considerable regeneration projects, increased connectivity and promising growth.

Average supply levels over the past decade have been 172,000 properties p.a. Supply levels would have to increase by 24%-43% per annum to meet the 380,000-p.a. target called for by the National Housing Federation.

The UK is, indisputably, a world-renowned hotspot for foreign investment. As a country that continues to lead many industries, it is hardly surprising that the demand for housing shows growth despite the global economic slowdown.

Investor confidence here is anything but fickle. 
The very year the Brexit vote occurred; Britain hit a record high for foreign direct investment. The net value jumped from £25.3 billion in 2015 to a staggering £145.6 billion in 2016 – the largest yearly value recorded in a decade (Reuters, 2017).
