This virtual event is part of our property advice series on buying a UK residential property. The interactive workshop style session will focus on a number of key areas that buyers need to understand so they can make an informed choice when they purchase a UK residential property.
The main focus of the 90 minute session will be on new-build properties but the subjects covered by our experts will have relevance across the residential property market, both for private buyers and buy-to-let landlords.
