Land Development – Options and Overage

Development of land has become increasingly complex in recent years due to changes in regulation. Our commercial property solicitors understand the planning and environmental issues which may affect your development; our expertise in this area enables us to offer practical and commercial advice to help you successfully complete your project.

We aim to be a positive force in driving deals forward to a satisfactory conclusion.

Our clients include developers and house builders, both large and small companies and individuals. We can advise on and handle site acquisition and disposal and new house or plot sales.

We are experienced in dealing with the following areas:

  • Restrictive covenants
  • Options
  • Conditional contracts and development and building contracts
  • Overage agreements and pre-emption agreements
  • Planning agreements, Section 106 agreements and unilateral undertakings
  • Infrastructure agreements and joint venture agreements
  • Indemnity insurance
  • New house or plot sales

If you are developing land, make sure you work with experts who will protect your interests. Call or email us today.

"According to one client, Hart Brown's team 'compares very favourably with other firms in the area'. Practice head Roderick Campbell provides 'practical and pragmatic advice' and is 'a first-class communicator'. John Guthrie, who impresses with his 'speed of service and attention to detail', and associate Tamzin Mandelli are other names to note."
