I am currently researching on UK property development and buying.
An interesting website for that is the https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/website.
While browsing through it, it became apparent to me that many companies related to real estate are rather a legal vehicle for an individual to buy a property.
Additionally, it appears that often a person creates one company per property it buys (see for instance this page : https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/officers/Jff76xmXFPDiRW40Yv8VvngLz_Q/appointments ).
Why is this a common practice amongst property developers / investors?
