Why use Judicare for international property law?
Cross-border legal expertise. Plain English advice.
Our team includes experts in the legal systems of many different countries. Being fluent in a range of languages, our international property lawyers can make sure no detail is missed in any contracts or other important documents or conversations, while ensuring you get the guidance you need in clear English with no unnecessary legal jargon.
UK-regulated solicitors. Real peace of mind.
We are a UK based firm of solicitors regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA). You can therefore have confidence that we meet the highest legal and professional standards. Being SRA regulated also means that we are required to carry professional indemnity insurance to cover claims up to £3million – much higher than that required for lawyers in many foreign jurisdictions.
Complete understanding of property law in the UK and around the world
Because we understand many different sets of laws from different countries, our international property solicitors know the difficulties that come when two sets of laws meet. This is particularly important when it comes to issues involving ownership, taxation and inheritance.
The Association of International Property Professionals (AIPP) was set up to improve standards of professionalism in a largely unregulated overseas property market. As AIPP members, we have signed up to a Code of Conduct that assures we adhere to the highest standards of honesty and professional integrity.
Highly experienced expertise
Our international property law experts have many years of experience dealing with a whole range of legal issues related to foreign property. This means we know all of the common problems you can run into (and the not so common ones) and what we can do to minimise any negative impact on your purchase.
Truly independent legal advice
We are truly independent legal experts. We are not allowed to act for the buyer and the seller at the same time and we are not tied with any Development Companies, Builders or Estate Agents. You can therefore have total confidence that we only ever have your best interests at heart and any advice we offer is trustworthy.
