In the current low interest rate environment, the property market in the UK can offer attractive and predictable rental yields or compelling refurbishment investment opportunities for overseas investors. Our experienced professionals can offer advice and support on property investments in London, from single buy to let to portfolio buying and developing.
History has proved it. Through the most challenging of times, property has consistently provided excellent long-term capital growth. And with rock-bottom interest rates, buy-to-let property can also generate regular income streams. Alternatively, individual property development investments can generate high rates of return over short time horizons.
With the gap between housing demand and supply set to grow over the next few years – especially in London – the current market conditions provide enormous opportunities for potential property investors. But with changes to the UK tax regime, and often complex local market conditions, expert advice is essential to ensure that your future investment expectations can be met.
Our property investment consultants can find your ideal property, negotiate the most attractive price, complete the deal on your behalf, and position the property to attract the highest quality tenants or the right buyer. We can also manage the property for you once a suitable tenant is found.
Initial consultation to build a thorough understanding of your investment objectives, and to advise you on current market conditions and on areas that will most effectively maximise your property investment goals.
Research and preview to identify and source suitable properties, using our extensive connections within the industry to access suitable investment opportunities ahead of the competition.

Using our network of architects, planning consultants, interior designers and tradesman, we can help position the property for enhanced rental yields or on-sale, cost-effectively and with minimal hassle.

In the current low-interest-rate environment, the UK property market can offer attractive and predictable rental yields or compelling refurbishment investment opportunities. The property also acts as a good hedge against inflation, and a good diversifier within an overall portfolio.
Every client is an individual and will have their own investment objectives. We work with our clients to define their brief, and then make recommendations on the most suitable property types and areas for investment.
A good property broker can help you define your investment brief and objectives and also make suggestions on what types of properties and areas are best suited for you.
You need to consider what your investment objectives are. Consider things such as yield, potential for future capital appreciation, appetite to refurbish (or not), timeframe for investment and exit strategy.

“We purchased our investment property, Viridian Apartments, with Black Brick as our buying agent. Upon completion, we had the task of redecorating the property and finding a tenant. After reviewing the proposals from other reputable agents with prominent offices in Battersea, we decided to strengthen our relationship with Black Brick and appointed them as our managing agents.
Though other agents were offering lower commissions, we decided that as overseas landlords, our property and our tenant would be better looked after by an agent who would be more personally involved. Sophie Amasha is extremely efficient, knowledgeable, hardworking and has a delightful personality. The redecoration and furnishing was completed in a timely manner and done efficiently and to a high standard, due to the great relationship that Black Brick and Sophie have with their service providers and the close supervision that they undertake.
Sophie’s guidance was invaluable in promptly finding a professional couple as our tenants, and negotiating the lease and rental. This was done in the week before Christmas, when everyone else would have been preoccupied with the festivities, and deferred the property to January’s listing! I am pleased to say that we made the right decision, and I believe that our tenants are extremely happy with the service that they receive whenever there is an issue with the property.”
