2015 Transactions Update

Posted on in IQE Isle of Man

Our longstanding real estate clients continue to utilise the Isle of Man for both development and commercial property acquisition in the UK. This activity in the first half of 2015 has seen our experienced administration team busy across the commercial and residential property sectors in the South East and North West of England and on infrastructure projects in Scotland.

A selection of some of our higher profile transactions include:-

• International Family Office/London Developer JV - Has seen a successful option led transaction complete in the region of £30m. This was a change of use for a new development comprising both commercial and residential units at a prestigious site in Central London.

• Commercial - sale of a portfolio of commercial units throughout England for a UK REIT.

• North West - acquisition of 2 commercial units in the North West for an international pension fund. The North West is now attracting attention from many of our    international client base who are seeking opportunities with a decent yield.

• European Family Office - 3 London based residential and mixed use developments completed totalling £24m with 4 more projects at various stages.

• Corporate Client - £14m HQ commercial property under development.

• London Residential Investment Properties - refinance of existing facilities remains an active area for IQE and we are seeing good availability of debt with both main stream and private funders.

• Equities/Commodities - active clients operating across equities and commodities.

• Acquisition, purchase and renovation of IQE's new Isle of Man HQ at Merchants House, North Quay!

Property transactions remain buoyant and we are currently working with clients on a number of larger Private Equity backed transactions for both UK and European assets.

The above is a short summary of recent work undertaken. To talk to us about working togegher contact Steve McCafferty smccafferty@iqe.im or call +44 (0) 7624 490561.

On a recent transaction we worked closely with IQE to set up and run a corporate structure to facilitate a new residential development in London. We found the IQE team responsive and proactive. It was clear that their property experience added value and understanding of the clients’ requirements on the project. Christine Jackson, Partner, Real Estate Group, Lawrence Graham LLP
