It has been recently reported that local investors are losing out to overseas ones, given the rise in demand for purchasing buy to let properties in Edinburgh, for example.
Between 2017 and 2018, the rise in overseas investments has increased dramatically as attention shifts to the Scottish capital, thanks partly to cooling accommodation prices in London. Last year alone saw an over 30% rise in non-UK investors buying up Edinburgh property.
Edinburgh Property for Overseas Investors
However, buying property in Edinburgh can be particularly cumbersome for overseas investors – for one, there’s a myriad of tax, regulatory and legislative laws revolving around property investment which must be carefully considered. Simply put, there’s a lot to consider when purchasing property in Edinburgh as an overseas investor.
It is, therefore, crucial that as a non-UK resident, if you’re planning to buy, sell or even transfer residential Edinburgh property – you must consult a well-versed property management agency that has experience in advising and aiding international investors to buy property in Edinburgh.
Purchasing property for investment in an overseas country can be riddled with complexities – for instance, all the various taxes which may impact your return on investment and the different options so as to how property can be owned in Edinburgh – this alone can make choosing the property itself rather easy and straightforward in contrast.
If you’re an overseas investor who’s planning to sell or transfer property in Edinburgh, there may be, for instance, several tax implications and a regulatory framework to consider – after all, investors must report sales or transfers to the relevant UK tax authorities under stringent deadlines.
Expert advice is what you need – particularly when it comes to buying property in Edinburgh from overseas, and this is where our decade-long expertise comes in.
