Specialists in marine property across the UK

Marine property in the UK is an extremely diverse asset class. It encompasses estuaries, ports marinas, cliff tops, beaches and extends over the sea bed where, increasingly, off-shore renewable energy installations are being constructed.

As such, the rules governing ownership and access rights are complex and often archaic. Interpreting this legislation requires skill and experience, especially as every marine property tends to have its own unique set of issues.
