We have particular expertise in drafting and negotiating a variety of bespoke legal documents including option agreements, land promotion agreements, exclusivity agreements, overage and uplift arrangements, rights of first refusal and contracts conditional upon planning.
From start to finish we work closely with you, your agent, accountant, and any lender involved to understand all aspects of your transaction and to ensure that as far as possible the deal is structured in the right way for you.
Where appropriate we are keen to visit sites so that we get a real feel for issues that may affect it that may not be readily apparent from simply reviewing the title deeds.
We have a team of well respected, experienced property lawyers with good local knowledge and experience who are here to help you.
