Land and development solicitors

Development land transactions are often complex and can present unique challenges requiring the resolution of legal issues in a pragmatic and commercial way. Whatever the size of the site, careful consideration is required as to the structure of the transaction, the condition of the site and any restrictions contained in the title deeds.

Our land and development solicitors have vast experience in this area, acting for developers, housebuilders and landowners on all aspects of land acquisition and disposal.
