We specialise in the acquisition and disposition of the reversionary interests in residential, commercial and mixed use developments.  Ground Rents are in most cases a long term investment and our specialist team is experienced in anticipating and mitigating challenges before they arise.


We act for some of the largest investors in freehold and leasehold reversions in residential commercial and mixed use developments and management companies including the Peverel Group, Simarc, Aviva, Dorchester, Grays Inn Estates, the Wallace Group, M&G and the Consensus Business Group.
