Frequently Asked Questions
1Why should I search for a property with United Property?
United Property Invest is the master agency on all property it sells, meaning if you buy with us you will not have to deal with a middle man. As part of this arrangement, the affiliates that we work with offer exclusive packages to our clients, which results in money saved on financial products, currency exchange, legal fees, furniture packages and much more.
2How is my investment secured?
All United Property Invest products have either been regulated by the FCA or have been through stringent due diligence to make sure all legal titles, proof of ownership and planning are in place.
3Buying overseas is an important decision, where should I purchase for investment?
United Property Direct promotes real estate investments in established regions with a proven track record for rental returns, steady capital appreciation and a robust economy that is resilient to recession. For pure investments, we typically offer tier one and two cities, which are established and stable commercial centres, while for lifestyle investments we look to leading vacation destinations with strong reputations close to infrastructure, airports and key amenities.
4I have been told to always use independent lawyers, why should I use the services you advise?
Rather than using in-house lawyers, United Property Invest recommends the services of several independent legal advisers who have a long standing record in representing clients from all corners of the earth. We do not pay our legal firms and they do not pay us. You are their client and they are legally obligated to act in your best interests.
5How do I know that my purchase of a property overseas will go smoothly?
Seamless communication between the developer, legal representative, currency exchange, land registry and client are all embedded into United Property Invest's bespoke Client Management System. This system tracks every stage of a property purchase from the initial enquiry right through to the completion of the property.
6Who am I dealing with when I consider using United Property Direct to find my property?
From receptionist to CEO, all United Property Invest staff have extensive experience in the real estate sector and are naturally hugely passionate about property. We also hold staff training programs regularly to ensure that all staff members are up to date with new property laws in each of the regions we promote.
7Who is in charge of United Property Direct, are they professionals?
The directors of United Property Invest have decades of experience in buying and selling real estate projects across multiple asset classes on an institutional and retail level. Between them, they have handled over 27,000 property transactions in 27 regions across 14 countries.
8What is the difference between United Property Direct and its competitors?
At United Property Invest we are the master agency for the developments we sell and we do not list properties that are not direct to the vendor. Therefore, you will never be dealing with a middle man.
9What is the process of buying in a safe and secure way?
Prior to offering a development or individual property to the public domain the listing will have passed our strict due-diligence tests. This is followed up by an independent lawyer carrying out full conveyance on the property once a reservation has been made. The result of this is that your investment property has a proven title prior to purchase and there will be no unwanted surprises after completion.
10Can I find a property without travelling to the location to buy?
Yes, all of our properties can be purchased remotely without having to view in person. However, if the purchase is not for pure investment and you wish to use the property yourself, we highly recommend that you take advantage of one of our Tailor Made Trips.
