Frequently Asked Questions

Investors who purchase during the construction stage tend to secure the best apartments and usually with a pre negotiated discount price directly from the developer.

We conduct full due diligence on all our project developers and our legal and financial team ensure the properties are fully checked, planning permission and funding is already in place and most importantly our developer partners have a proven track record of delivery. Most of our developments only require deposits of 20%-30% which are usually covered by warranty and sometimes insurance protection.

There is also a solicitor escrow account specifically to hold deposited funds. This gives an additional level of protection to the investor, as funds can only be drawn down in arrears of work completed. Payments also need to be certified by the Chartered Quantity Surveyors managing the construction payments.

Whilst stock markets, equities and bonds are tumbling just like the financial recession of 2009, the UK property market has always been very resilient due to the high-density population and national shortage of housing in major cities and towns. If you take a measured approach to property investment there are some great opportunities available certainly with a medium to long term approach.  

You will notice the UK housing market has always performed strongly and rebounded very quickly during times of crisis. We have the financial data and market research to support this so please contact one of our advisors to discuss this further.

Not at all, in fact the UK has always promoted overseas investment and long been considered a safe buying environment for non -residents as there are many attractive opportunities for overseas investors who are encouraged by the stability of the pound sterling and the resilience of the UK property market.  

Many of our properties come with a rental assurance period, naturally outside of this period we will still have a professional property and letting management service to ensure you can relax whilst we take care of the properties on your behalf.

Wayne Venter

International Business Development Manager

Wayne has been in the property industry for over 17 years. He started out selling residential properties in the northern suburbs of Sandton, South Africa, for one of the bigger real estate brands, before moving to a boutique, Johannesburg-based property developer. He worked at a senior level, specialising in residential developments on the north coast of KZN and various other areas of Northern Johannesburg.

Wayne moved to selling luxury, free standing homes and apartments in Sandton, Johannesburg in 2006, having joined the Country’s leading real estate brand and within six months was leading the team. In 2008, he began to focus exclusively on the luxury apartments in central Sandton, priced from approximately R2 million to R60 million. Over the years, he has also added commercial property sales and rentals to his repertoire, as well as building his own investment property portfolio between 2011 and 2018.

By 2018, realising where the South African property market was headed, he sold out of his investment property portfolio to de-risk and went looking for a real estate company to buy into. South Africa’s property market was extremely volatile at that time, so Wayne took the initiative and moved to London to work in property in the UK.

Daniel had a passion for property from a young age so he began his working life by undertaking a plumbing apprenticeship for a large well known UK developer to pursue a career in construction.
