Development and regeneration

Comprehensive legal service for developers and housebuilders in relation to site acquisitions and disposals, including plot sales, on a regional and national basis.

Successful developments depend on a number of things, none more important than the well managed acquisition and disposal of land. Commercial, legal and administrative considerations all come into play, and expert professional advice can make a real difference to the outcome of any building project.

Weightmans' legal service is based on a sound appreciation of the marketplace and environment you work in. Our service is pragmatic and we adopt a pro-active approach, keeping you fully informed and updated on the progress of every project. We take a commercial view in circumstances where a transaction proves abortive, ensuring that your interests are best served by the actions we recommend.

We advise on commercial projects involving mixed-use schemes, office locations and public realm. We understand planning issues and the requirement for close dialogue with local authorities.

We are experienced in every aspect of land dealing, including site purchase at auction or by tender or private treaty. Once site acquisition is completed, we prepare site disposal documentation and ensure the cost-effective and speedy disposal of units by sale or lease.

Projects we are associated with range from ten or more units to several hundred units for national housebuilders and commercial developers. Whatever the size or value of your developments, we can help you complete them with minimum hassle and maximum financial return.

Daylight robbery – ignore it at your peril

Sometimes the most important considerations in a property development are those which are not immediately obvious, at least to the naked eye.
