Real Estate Talking Points: Britain’s open for business!* (*Ts and Cs apply): real estate and the National Security and Investment Act 2021

The UK’s National Security and Investment Act (“NSI Act”) regime came into force on 4 January 2022. The new regime radically overhauls the UK’s approach to investment screening.
