For housebuilders legal advice is invaluable: it expedites bespoke solutions that balance risk and reward for landowners, promoters and developers, and facilitates development on sites that may not have been available in the past.
Our large team has experience in all sectors of the housebuilding industry. Many of our housing development and mixed-used development lawyers previously worked in the development industry; therefore we see the bigger picture, speak your language and understand problems from the inside.
We offer a comprehensive range of legal services for housebuilders – from planning strategy, managing large projects and arranging site acquisitions to assisting with applications, preparing contracts, drafting development agreements and conveyancing.
We are also adept at securing land for clients – taking ownership of the project through the planning process to the sale of individual plots or the whole site.
Our clients include market and affordable housing builders, strategic land companies, funds, landowners and public sector organisations. We are also members of the Home Builders Federation and the Kent Developers Group.
You can expect a personal and professional service. We offer housebuilders legal advice that is clear and pragmatic. We guide you through the relevant legal processes and always consider the idiosyncrasies of your particular development.
