Effectively managing your estate and property portfolio is essential for enhancing the student experience.
Our long track record in Estates covers all aspects of university property portfolios. This includes maximising property asset value, resolving construction disputes, development agreements, regeneration projects and disposals of land.
We are highly skilled in leveraging private and public finance for property schemes, and we’ve worked with a number of partners to help raise capital for key infrastructure projects.
Projects we advise on include complex arena developments, student accommodation schemes and student tenancy agreements, including rules and regulations, disciplinary issues, obtaining possession and relationships with external accommodation providers.
We also help higher education clients to negotiate and manage high value construction projects up to complete campus rebuilds, along with the associated bespoke design solutions and specific procurement options. We also advise clients on planning issues, such as applying for planning permissions, obtaining certificates of lawfulness and section 106 agreements.
For environmental matters, we have a specialist unit that delivers both preventative and reactive advice on environmental issues.
