Development Agreements

Our vastly experienced commercial property solicitors can advise you on the legal ramifications of the whole development process, from start to finish.

Having clear legal advice before you proceed with a development is essential to ensure the smooth and successful running of the project. Development agreements cover a variety of agreements among landowners, tenants, developers, and investors.

We understand that each agreement will be different and thus tailor our advice to your individual needs. There are several considerations when creating a development agreement causing them to be very detailed and complex to draft.

There are various types of development agreements and which one you choose will depend upon the nature and complexity of your development. However, there are a few clauses that are usually found in all agreements. These are:

  • The plans and specifications of the development
  • The time frame for the development
  • Provisions to terminate the agreement.

Our friendly and professional team will guide you through each step of the process ensuring that your commercial objectives are considered throughout.

Commercial Property Testimonials

I just wanted to let you know how impressed my wife and I have been with Emily’s work on our recent purchase of some garden land.  I have acted as a chartered surveyor and arbitrator in commercial property for over 40 years and was highly impressed by her great ability, impeccable communication and proactive approach at all times.  She is a credit to your firm and I will always ask her to handle our property matters going forward.
