Our residential development sales team are experts in the field. We have a reputation for our multi-faceted ability to deal with site acquisition, site assembly, development issues, mixed use schemes, site set up and large-scale plots sales.  Putting it simply, we can assist with the whole transaction, from beginning to end, regularly acting for developers and as the recommended firm of lawyers for investors.

Our clients range from smaller property developers to some of the UK’s leading housebuilders.  We are on the panel of several large developers as the recommended lawyers for purchasers.

We have a keen perspective and understand the issues throughout the transaction. Our experts have extensive knowledge and understanding of the London and South East market, as well as international launches.  The core team are supported by partners and lawyers in the wider real estate team, including planning, construction, and estate management.

We understand the commercial implications for developers for a fast turnaround in exchanging and completing on plot sales. Using a case management system, we ensure the process is standardised; fast and efficient at each stage; and follows best practice. This allows the developer to rely on us to lead the transactions, once the heads of terms are agreed, and help them meet their targets.
