Property Development

Our Property Development Team was formed in 2015.

Our Property Development Team was formed in 2015 when we started working with a new and exciting developer based in the Midlands. Both the developer and our team have grown substantially since then and we now handle several thousand apartment sales every year for them having forged a strong working relationship assisting not only with the standard sales process but also with any legislative changes, commercial considerations, and financing agreements that they encounter through their developments. We now work with additional developers, applying the tried and tested model to ensure quick, cost-effective sales whilst not compromising on standard of service or the high-level advice.

We can help you with all types of litigation matters, including:

Large scale residential plot sales

Acquisition of development land

Drafting of residential leases

Leasehold ground rent and the Housing Act 1988

Islamic mortgage information for developers

General advice for developers
