Real Estate Investment Structuring

Structuring a real estate investment can be complex. You need to bring together information from multiple sources to see the lay of the land, and then transfer the administration of existing entities and structures so it’s all under one roof. Which can be time and resource intensive.

Looking to structure your real estate investment?

The Ocorian real estate team - led by a blend of chartered surveyors, chartered accountants, lawyers and chartered secretaries - lives and breathes real estate. We combine these sector specialists with cutting-edge technology to ensure our clients and their investors receive an accurate, knowledgeable and helpful service throughout the life cycle of the investment.

For nearly 50 years we have administered a wide range of structures and SPVs including property unit trusts, limited partnerships, REITs, and companies, covering a spread of jurisdictions and asset classes.

We recognise that each asset has its nuances and so we ensure the administration team working on your portfolio takes the time to get to know and understand you, your investors and the property.
