Property Solicitors – Property Finance

The GSC team manages a wide variety of real estate finance work, including bilateral and syndicated loans for the acquisition, construction, development and refurbishment of real estate assets.   Understandably, a good portion of the work from 2013 has involved loan restructuring, however we are also seeing new loans made, particularly in the hotel and leisure sector, where we have a particularly strong borrower base.

GSC is also skilled in the tax aspects of real estate finance, and are particularly known for our:

  • Broad mix of banks and borrowers: The team acts for a number of major lenders. However, we are equally likely to represent the borrowers. This gives us a strong understanding of the requirements of all parties, contributing to our reputation as practical, deal-making lawyers.
  • Work in the hotels and restaurants sector: We assist a number of major hotel owners in financing the acquisition, construction and development of hotels. We also act for a number of major fast food franchise owners, particularly companies operating large numbers (often 30 to 50), in all their property finance work.
  • Another key sector we have specialist expertise is nursing homes; working for the owners and operators of nursing homes handling all aspects of the real estate financing of homes in this highly regulated sector.
