Safe as houses? Why property schemes fail and what to do about it

Date: Thursday 25th April 2019
Time: 08:00 AM - 09:30 AM
Location: ETC Venues, 11 Portland Street, , M1 3HU
Regeneration and Property

The UK was once considered a safe haven for property investment, but recently a string of failed developments have left overseas investors, first-time buyers and lenders facing huge losses with seemingly little redress. What went wrong? Is it safe to buy apartments ‘off plan’ or is the practice open to abuse by developers?

At this event, our property and legal professionals will look behind the scenes to explain how the system works, the pitfalls (and opportunities) for lenders, investors and property professionals and what solutions are available when major schemes collapse.
