Experience

  • Running the due diligence aspects of a sale of a large mixed portfolio of over 40 properties in England and Wales valued in the hundreds of millions.
  • Working as part of a team selling a portfolio of care homes which involved issuing a certificate of title for each property for prospective purchasers to review and bid against.
  • Leading a team purchasing a large portfolio of industrial properties for a JV company. The size of the portfolio meant that due diligence was carried out by way sampling. Full reviews were carried out for the larger assets and tenancy checks were undertaken for the other properties.
