Specialist taxation and ownership advice for heritage property

Wrigleys' heritage team advise on all aspects of the ownership and taxation of heritage property and art including works of art, furniture, jewellery, stamps, coins and medals.

Why you may require Wrigleys' advice

Heritage land and buildings can pose various legal problems. They often have high capital values, but frequently any income they produce is absorbed or exceeded by maintenance or conservation costs. In rural areas these problems can be aggravated by current farming trends. Additionally, families owning such a property may be reluctant to see it sold at any price. Some heritage assets are transferred to or run by charities.
