Residential Land Development – Services to land promoters and housebuilders
We understand the highly competitive nature of the residential development market and the pressures faced by housebuilders and promoters to turn sites around quickly, whilst maximising value and evaluating and managing risk. Our focus is aligned to achieve those objectives, through concise and clear advice and a timely and efficient service.
Acting for a select number of high-quality housebuilders and long-established promoters, we pride ourselves on our long working relationships with our clients.
We take time to get to know our clients, their objectives and business, offering a partner-led, proactive service, fully tailored to the particular requirements of the individual client and transaction.
Our work encompasses the various stages in the development cycle.
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.
