Distressed Portfolio Purchase
The term distressed property is commonly used to describe a property in relation to which the owner cannot maintain it due to defaulting on their financial arrangements, resulting in lender action. Sales of such properties, for below open market value, are commonplace in order to promote a quick sale and where buying in bulk, even greater discounts, will be available.
Prospective investment purchasers are always looking for value in what is a very competitive marketplace, and distressed properties are often a very attractive proposition. However, purchasing distressed property is not for the faint of heart and presents its own particular challenges and pitfalls.
Sellers will frequently have very little information about the property and will be looking for a quick turnaround, while the buyer will often be expected to take a view on commercial and/or legal matters that they would normally expect to be resolved by the seller. When buying a portfolio of distressed properties, such challenges and potential issues are only magnified.
Whether you are looking to acquire distressed properties from administrators, receivers and liquidators, or direct from a lender, you can rely upon our vast experience to ensure that the inevitable challenges presented by transactions of this nature are overcome as effectively and efficiently as possible.
