Property development is a fine balance of risk and reward. Getting that balance right, often under pressure of multi-party interests and time constraints, can be difficult.

Our highly experienced team of property development solicitors can help you. With expertise on planning and development issues that might arise and litigation support on hand, the team provides a full range of commercial legal services to both residential and commercial property developers and construction clients. We also work with landowners looking to realise the value of their estates.

From initial planning and environmental concerns, through to the sale and acquisition of development sites, and on to the selling of completed plots/units, we can provide you with expert guidance, advice and support throughout the entire process.

We are aware of the commercial pressures that can apply and our lawyers will work with you and all third parties, to secure your investment, free up cash and minimise funding delays to ensure the transaction is completed as efficiently as possible.
