We have considerable experience in this area whether in the acquisition or disposal of development land or commercial buildings.
We act for national house builders, local developers and businesses seeking to secure premises for start-ups or expansion.
We will endeavour to ensure that you are giving or getting good title to the land or premises and carry out all the relevant searches and enquiries. Where infrastructure agreements are required we can deal with the necessary legal work with the Local Authority, Highways and the utility companies and assist you in obtaining the security bonds.
In a few cases where there are perceived defects in title or apparent breaches of past covenants we can prepare a Statutory Declaration for you or your seller and arrange appropriate indemnity insurance.
We will deal with the registration of your ownership at the Land Registry and, in relation to development sites, obtain the Land Registry’s approval to your estate layout plan; we have systems in place to be able to deal with your plot sales.
As part of the process we expect to work alongside you, your lender, financial adviser, accountant and any specialist professionals involved in the transaction.
In most cases we are able to give you an accurate estimate of our charges, VAT and outlays and your Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) liability at the outset.
