Expert advice from your dedicated construction solicitor
Advice on key consultants, contracts and agreements
Our construction lawyers advise housebuilders and developers in relation to the appointment of key consultants as well as building contracts and associated development agreements.
Securing finance for the construction phase of a development also often involves the funder requiring collateral warranties from key consultants on the project and knowledge of the intricacies of construction law as well as pragmatic commercial knowledge is essential in ensuring the funder and the consultant can come to an agreed position.

Your construction questions answered
A collateral warranty is put in place to supplement an existing contract with the addition of a third party.
They therefore provide rights to those who would not otherwise be included within the main contract such as building contracts and sub-contracts. At Goughs, our land and development team often advise on such agreements to ensure everyone involved in the transaction is protected.
Well as lawyers, we are of course going to say yes !
But in all seriousness, any form of construction can be extremely costly, complex and lengthy. As with most things in life, you need to be protected from the word go. The upfront costs of getting legally certified contracts in place with everyone involved in the project will protect you in the long run. They will also provide peace of mind for everyone involved.
You should consider contracts for architects, engineers and surveyors, among others. For advice on what you need before moving forward, get in touch with our expert team today.
