Commercial Property Development

Commercial property development can cover a wide range of activities from undertaking improvements to existing properties to developing a property from scratch through purchasing land, obtaining planning permission and carrying out the construction work.

We have extensive experience acting for commercial developers on all aspects of development projects. By their very nature these projects can be highly complex and long term and therefore it is essential that you work with a legal team that you can trust. We will guide you through each step of the process and provide practical legal advice and guidance along the way.

Some of the areas we can assist with are:

  • Land options
  • Acquisition of development sites
  • Planning
  • Conditional contracts
  • Overage
  • Lettings
  • Estate management and service charges
  • Development agreements
  • Development financing
  • Section 106 Agreements
  • Selling

We will work closely with you and your advisers through the project to ensure that all bases are covered and that you choose the best options for your development. This may involve input from experts such as surveyors, planning specialists, construction specialists and tax experts. We have relationships with a wide network of experts so you can be confident that we can put you in contact with the right people.
