We are the Leading Specialists in UK Property for Overseas Buyers, UK Expats and Buy-to-Let Investors. Please watch Section 3 of the Main Video on our website as this explains in detail everything you need to know about us.
Part of Large Group
Find UK Property is the trading name of International Property Specialists Ltd, a UK company. We are members of a large group of companies specialising in UK Property Sales. We operate from the 26 acre business park (Time Technology Park) where we have our head offices in Lancashire. We also have offices in Middlesbrough in the North East. The Family Group has been established at our Lancashire site for almost 30 years and we have been trading in this property business for over 15 years. The BBC have produced 5 programs on our family business. These show how we acquire, renovate and sell properties at amongst the lowest prices in the UK. All episodes are shown on the Testimonials page of the website.
What We Do
Find UK Property sell low cost houses to property buyers from the UK and all over the World. All of our properties are located in 28 towns in North East and North West England. Our clients have 100% control of their properties and most rent them directly to us after purchase. This enables them to become passive investors, yet still retain full management control. There are no property management or letting agents. We become your direct long-term tenants and agree to pay you guaranteed rent and maintain the properties at our cost. You fully own the property, benefit from long term guaranteed rental income and future property capital growth, but do not need to do anything – in our agreement we agree to keep the property in a good rentalble condition at our own cost. We treat the properties like our own and rent them out to our own tenants. In that relationship, we become the landlord of the property and are liable for all tenants and property issues. We renovate properties well, and keep them in a good condition, with the aim of getting more rent from our tenants than we have to pay you. This way we can cover our costs and remain profitable.
Although we are accredited to be estate agents, in our dealing with you, after property purchase, we actually become your tenants and you become our landlord. We pay you rent and agree to maintain your property in a good condition at our cost. This arrangement is agreed in the agreement to rent and sublet and allows you to retain full day to day management control of your property whilst renting it directly to us. It means that you can decide at any time what to do with your property (with the required notice period – so that we can deal with any of our subtenants).
Dedicated Sales and Admin Teams
Find UK Property specializes in UK investment properties with full service and long term support. Although part of a large group, we have small dedicated teams dealing with customer sales and customer admin and providing a very personal service. Our Sales Team consists of senior property consultants with many years of experience of the UK Property market.
We have a policy whereby our most senior and experienced staff aim to have a meeting at some point with all customers directly, as we appreciate that property purchase is a major decision for most people. The Admin team provides support with regards to all agreements, payments for property, client account statements and property management updates. We do not have traditional “sales” staff – just properyt consultants and admin staff to process sales.
Our UK offices are 45 minutes from Manchester International Airport. Please contact us prior to arranging a visit. These days a good Zoom video meeting provides all of the information you need and visits are not essential.
Find UK Property staff have passed the relevant examinations set by the National Federation of Property Professionals. One of our staff was officially recognised by NFoPP as achieving the highest marks amongst all UK Estate Agents in 2012 Winner & Highest Achiever in UK – “UK Residential Property”

Our company sells UK properties to UK residents, overseas investors and UK expats. Such buyers want to deal with professional and knowledgeable property consultants and this award will further help us, by showing that we have well-trained staff.” Property Professional – Nov/Dec 2013 Issue pages 62-63.
