Property Development

If you are thinking of selling land to a developer or you are a developer yourself looking to acquire property to build on or simply to “land bank” for future opportunities, we are here to help.

If you are a land owner we can provide the expertise and negotiation skills to help you to achieve a sale on the best possible terms. If  you are a developer, either in commercial or residential property, we can advise on the initial purchase whether that be by way of a conditional contract or option, acquisition and development funding, site assembly, infrastructure agreements, plot sales and lettings.

Our expert services include:

  1. Conditional contracts and option agreements
  2. Overage agreements and “clawback”
  3. Infrastructure agreements
  4. Finding practical solutions to legal title problems
  5. Easements
  6. Restrictive covenants
  7. Joint ventures
  8. Plot sales and lettings

The issues involved in buying or selling land for development are often complex and require a wide range of skills and technical knowledge. We believe there is no substitute for experience, whether we are acting for a land owner selling land for development or an experienced developer. This is why all matters are handled by an experienced specialist solicitor who will be able to guide you through the legal process.
