Pre-purchase property analysis/analysis of existing property portfolios
Are you currently considering whether to buy a property? Are you wondering what the tax impact would be on your assets and whether it really makes sense to buy? Or do you perhaps already own property that is rented out or is mixed-use?
We conduct a thorough property analysis either pre-purchase or for existing portfolios, taking a close look at the properties and answering any questions you have.
Some of the questions our clients often ask:
- How much capital do I need to be able to buy?
- What counts as capital?
- What is the effective return on the property I rent out?
- How long will it take to pay off my mortgage?
- How high are the actual costs over the entire term of the mortgage?
- What is the situation with regard to tax on a property purchased in another country?
- Is it possible to pay cash for a property?
- How far in the future can the purchase date for a property be?
- How long does the process of rescinding a contract take?
- Which time of year makes most sense to buy a property?
