Property Development

The business of property development – whether it’s a big multi-unit project or simply a single plot – can be a complex and challenging process.  That’s why you need the best legal advice to ensure it runs as smoothly as possible from start to finish.

We have a wealth of experience on commercial and residential sites, including the acquisition of land or existing buildings for redevelopment.

With offices in London (Baker Street and City), Manchester and Exeter, we have specialist solicitors who can help you with any property development requirements throughout the UK.

Being acutely aware of the complexities that can arise along the way, we have a strong team of solicitors across our four offices who have the expertise to assist clients on all property development matters nationwide.

We are able to offer a full service for both developers and investors – from initial site purchase and dealing with financial requirements, through to completion and handover.

Clients range from investors seeking to acquire off-plan, new build properties and those wishing to grow their portfolios, to developers requiring full-service representation including site purchasing and dealing with bridging and development finance, as well as plot sales after completion.

Our office in Manchester recently acted for more than 100 buyers purchasing new-build apartments in Deansgate Square, one of Europe’s largest and most prestigious developments.

After site acquisitions have been completed, we can assist by preparing legal packs and drafting template contracts and leases.

We are also able to deal with non-standard arrangements such as option agreements and assignments of contracts.

We pride ourselves on providing a bespoke personal service with one partner or solicitor taking the lead and being your main point of contact.
