‘We’re seeing lots of high-value tenancy agreements for individual houses or apartments,’ Michael Ranson says – a result of SDLT, Brexit and some international people not wanting to take a long-term view about buying.
Ranson also advises on country property, recent work including ‘really sizeable country deals’. ‘Once people fall in love with a house and estate and commit to it, they tend to really commit to it… in a way that maybe in London they don’t do so much at the moment,’ he says.
A peer highlights how Ranson explains ‘incredibly technical detail with a deft touch, tailored perfectly’. His practice also extends to real estate disputes.
