Our large and specialist Land Development department focuses solely on the legal aspects of residential estate development and related issues.
Our expert team is used to dealing with all sizes of development from small sites to the large estates with hundreds of plots.
We recognise the importance of a swift and efficient legal process for our clients. Our service covers not only the preparation of the initial detailed portfolio of documentation needed to achieve any sale but also all related matters involving H M Land Registry, Local Authorities, Utility Supply Companies and the NHBC which are vital to a successful development.
We have created systems to handle estate developments involving Freehold sales, Leasehold sales (whether flats or maisonettes), disposals under Building Licences, Sheltered Housing Developments, Marina Developments and Social Housing.
We are particularly used to dealing with disposals where there is a part exchange element and to the handling of the sales of second hand properties acquired in this way.
Chambers UK 2009: "The team here has created a housebuilding practice of such scale and quality that sources remark: 'Forget the South West - this is one of the best residential development firms in the entire country!' The team's work ranges from new settlements and town expansion to small executive developments and affordable housing schemes, and it is frequently involved in the redevelopment of brownfield sites and city centre developments."
