UK real estate for Investors

Welcome to UKvastgoed.be / UKimmo.be / UKinvest.be. Our company selects high yielding real-estate investment projects for non-UK investors. We help our customers choosing the right project for their investment preferences, help them with the paperwork and set up all necessary contracts for an easy, hassle free management of the assets.

As we invest ourselves in many of our projects, we have gone through the process many times and we know exactly what the issues are for non-residents.

We are based near Brussels in Belgium. We serve of course Belgian customers, but have a fast growing network of international investors in Netherlands, France, Germany and China.

Why UK?

WIthin Europe, the UK is undoubtedly the most interesting destination for entry-level real estate investments:

  • Our projects offer a minimum annual yield of 6% for residential and 8% on commercial investments. Plus of course a capital gains at exit. This is more then double the yields that can be achieved in the Euro-zone
  • The UK market has become quite sophisticated in “buy-to-let” with many projects aiming at foreign investors. In every single project, there is a managment company involved to lease or find tenants for your assets. No need to travel to UK to find a tenant or to replace a light bulb.
  • Many projects have fixed, assured returns and an agreed exit, which makes them ideal for foreign investors with little time to manage individual assets and a need for fixed returns.
  • There is no need to travel to the UK. All can be done at your own location
  • For foreign investors, taxes are very favourable with a 0% tax rate up to 11.000£ of rental income. Also stamp duty and other taxes are much lower then anywhere else in Europe.

As London has been a magnet for foreign investors, yields on London projects are at present much lower (2-3%). As a consequence, London is chosen by investors hoping for a higher appreciation.
