The article presents information on a new tax regime introduced by the British Government in response to a lack of clarity concerning real estate derivatives contracts. As the market develops, property derivatives may also provide a cheaper means of obtaining exposure to the risks and rewards of property ownership and it is thought more bespoke derivatives relating to specific assets or asset classes may subsequently develop. One major advantage of using property derivatives is that the transaction costs are likely to be substantially lower.
