MORE INFORMATION

Further information on how we help housebuilders and land promoters

We work with our clients and their consultants to establish the viability of a site from a legal point of view. We can advise on the risks associated with title issues and suggest pragmatic and workable solutions, and we assist in structuring and documenting an efficient land assembly and deal structure with the landowners.

Our due diligence will highlight any potential tax implications and title issues providing a meaningful risk evaluation and providing practical solutions where problems arise.

Meanwhile, Lodders’ specialist highways and planning team can engage with consultants and compliment and support their services to deliver necessary planning consents and statutory agreements.

Post-planning we can advise and assist in the installation of on and off-site infrastructure, including collaboration with neighbouring developers, and strategies for sale and acquisition of the consented land and all associated post-completion formalities.

Lodders’ streamlined New Homes team deals with the development site set up process on all manner of sites and is able to turn over large volumes of plot sales in a timely and cost-efficient manner.
