Tom Allfree

Spear's Review

Since joining Wedlake Bell in 1999 and becoming partner in 2009, Tom Allfree has developed a wide client base in both commercial and residential property deals.

Allfree has led the residential team since 2013, acting for a variety of UK and international clients, on the wide scope of property matters. Clients include wealthy individuals, developers, landlords and investors buying and selling London homes, as well as established estates buying and selling agricultural land.

‘There is an undersupply of property generally, which affects the whole market,' he says. 'At the prime level, buyers need to be properly advised and act quickly to secure exceptional properties at an acceptable price when they become available.’

Adviser Profile

Tom Allfree's practice covers all aspects of residential conveyancing, acting for UK and overseas individuals, estates, companies, banks and funds advising on disposals and acquisitions of freehold and leasehold properties as well as general landlord and tenant issues. 

He qualified as a solicitor and joined Wedlake Bell in 1999 and became a partner in 2009. He has headed up the Residential Property team since 2013. 

Allfree aims to be the trusted advisor to his clients. In the prime property world, opportunities to acquire exceptional properties do not come along often, and it is important to work closely with clients and their other advisors to 'do what needs to be done' to secure the property, often within extremely tight timescales. 

Recent experience: sale and acquisition of high value central London properties; purchase of an apartment in central London in excess of £50M; structuring the sale of residential units in a large development in Greenwich; purchase of a 400-acre farm; purchase of a grouse moor; selling portfolios of properties for LPA Receivers.
