Experience

Since qualifying as a Solicitor in 2003 Bilyana has specialised in commercial property development and has built up a client base of large regional and national property developers. Bilyana advises on land acquisitions, option agreements, site assembly (easements, covenants, planning agreements, licenses), land promotion, infrastructure and development agreements.  

Bilyana has provided advice on several development projects in respect of land owned by the Homes England, advising in relation to both the development agreement and building leases.

In addition, Bilyana has been advising on developments and disposal of affordable housing, acting for a number of large regional and national affordable providers.

Being a part of the firm’s Housebuider Sector Group Bilyana is able to draw upon the expertise and experience of Birkett’s colleagues in complementary practice areas such as planning and construction and continue to provide advice in accurate, timely and straightforward manner.

Practicing as a Property Development lawyer prompted Bilyana to undertake an LLM in Environmental Law. Bilyana has provided legal advice on a number of developments, in particular on land owned by the government agencies, where the Code for Sustainable Homes was embedded at every level of the development. This was a major contributing factor in her  decision to research this area of the law and produce her dissertation paper on the topic of the role of sustainability in UK planning and property development law. In May of 2015 Bilyana was awarded an LLM in Environmental Law with Merit.
