79% of all Central London real estate investments came from overseas based investors in 2018 with similar numbers predicted for 2019 (JLL, 2019). The UK has introduced a number of new regulatory requirements for overseas investors recently.  For example from 2021, there will be a new register of the beneficial owners of overseas entities that own or wish to buy or let UK property.  We can advise on all aspects of your property investments in the UK.
