Our residential property development services

We support a wide range of UK and international clients with all aspects of residential property development, helping you to turn your plans into successful developments.

Acquisition terms

We know that the success or failure of a development can often be determined in the earliest stages by the terms on which you acquire a development site. We can assist you with negotiating terms that support your plans helping to ensure you can achieve the right return on your investment.

Development funding

No development can succeed without the right funding in place. We can advise you on all of the legal aspects of development finance, including reviewing and negotiating amendments to funding agreements to ensure the terms match your long-term interests.

Contracts & agreements

Having the right contacts and agreements in place is essential to ensure your development is delivered on schedule and on budget with the minimum hassle. If problems arise, a well-written contract is often key to achieving a fast, amicable resolution.

Our solicitors can draft, review and negotiate all types of contracts and agreements required for residential property developments including construction contracts, supplier contracts, joint venture agreements, partnering agreements, and sale and purchase agreements.

Residential property sales

We provide a highly reliable service for selling individual properties within residential developments, either off-plan or as finished units, helping you to minimise your risk, achieve a fair return on investment and unlock vital funds for future projects.
