Acquisitions & Disposals: The secret to smooth progress
At a glance
It’s no great secret. The key to ensuring smooth progress for your sale or acquisition is preparation. Surprisingly, that’s often overlooked – but not at Memery Crystal. We’re determined to get it right from the start. Far from slowing down the process, knowing how and what to prepare cuts delays in resolving issues and expedites a successful outcome.

At Memery Crystal we understand the process of selling and acquiring property and how to ensure the process is smooth and the desired outcome achieved. Our knowledgeable and efficient team will assist sellers in providing all the relevant information a purchaser will require without delay.
If you’re the purchaser, we’ll undertake all pertinent due diligence on your acquisition. So if there are disclosures later that affect your purchase, such as a disputed right of way or an unwanted tenant, we’ll be better positioned to investigate and resolve.
All our clients, whether real estate investors, entrepreneurs, SMEs or high net worth individuals, benefit from our proactive attitude, together with the additional support we can offer from our dedicated corporate and tax teams where required.
