Our residential property investment team works with institutional investors, developers, property companies, high-net-worth individuals, receivers and administrators across the UK, advising on the full spectrum of residential investment property.

We have experience in the acquisition and disposal of income producing residential assets, freehold ground rents, operational PBSA investments, HMO portfolios and commercial to residential conversion opportunities.

We also provide investment and development viability advice across all residential property types including new build-to-rent schemes.

Whether your aim is to grow your investment holdings, maximise the value from your existing asset(s) or achieve the best possible returns upon their disposal, our residential investment experts can help.

“We chose Vail Williams due to the strong regional and national presence in the market. After launching a successful marketing campaign, we agreed terms with a purchaser and successfully disposed of the asset. The process was incredibly smooth, and we look forward to working with Vail Williams again.”

Howard Williamson, Director, Harwood Real Estate.
