China desk

Over the last three decades, Chinese investors have relied on us as a trusted resource when looking to buy residential properties in London. Our range of services extends from our Shanghai office which forms a first point of contact, to our dynamic China Desk in London which ensures that all stages of the property purchase are smooth, discreet and transparent. Our Shanghai-based personnel regularly visit London in order to keep abreast with the most current property trends, topics and techniques.

With offices in China, Hong Kong, India, Malaysia and Singapore, Benham and Reeves has a reputation for excellence throughout the region. Chinese investors put a great emphasis on trusted relationships as they may not always get to view their target property. They require an estate agent that staffs its China desk with native speakers who can conduct complex negotiations in the relevant languages and see them through from property search to post-completion.

There are distinct advantages for Chinese investors when they work with us:

  • Working closely with our international offices, we can pinpoint the needs of potential investors in China before starting the main search for properties for sale in London. This involves the strategic targeting of requirements so that properties meet the investment needs of a particular client
  • An in-depth knowledge of the London property market that is based on exhaustive research of both local and international trends. Long-standing links with leading property developers allow us to pass on invaluable knowledge to our clients.
  • Advice concerning financing, legal & tax regulations.
  • Strategic planning that ensures that our client’s property portfolio is giving the best return possible. New areas of London are constantly opening up and as a London estate agent, we can advise how best to exploit the opportunities that they offer.
  • Fair and accurate property valuations are a vital starting point for any serious property plan. When investors are involved in multiple purchases it is important to keep a close eye on overheads. To this end, we seek to ensure that our clients do not pay a penny more than they have to.
  • Investment in a London property that pays immediate dividends is what we all want for our clients. Our capable and experienced staff are experts in taking the hassle out of finding and negotiating with quality tenants.
