Residential Property Development & Construction

Blacks Solicitors’ Residential Property Development team specialise in providing legal advice to land owners, developers and house builders across England and Wales.

At Blacks we have a large team of solicitors who are well equipped to support clients through every stage of the development process from site acquisition through to disposal of plots, and all of the usual ancillary legal documentation along the way.

Our clients include local, regional and niche developers (operating in the public and private sectors), landowners, investors, and funders. Sites range from social housing projects through to bespoke high value suburban schemes including office and residential flat conversions, new build housing sites, and apartment developments.

Blacks are also accustomed to acquiring and assembling complex sites, dealing with Development Loan Agreements and Forward Funding Agreements, Joint Venture Agreements, Development Options, Land Promotion Agreements, Pre-emption Agreements, Overage Agreements, and the sales of the finished units (including the common parts).

In addition, the Team are capable of dealing with complex time critical transactions and have very close connections with key external advisers which proves invaluable in getting deals completed on time. We also work closely with other teams within the Firm, including the Corporate Law and Conveyancing teams, to provide additional support for our clients where needed.

Whatever your interests, Blacks’ bespoke, relationship driven approach allows us to concentrate on understanding your needs; helping you to avoid issues and find practical and cost-effective solutions.
