Setting up your development site can be complex, and you need a clear vision, taking into account the size and location, your commercial strategy and any specific issues affecting the land.

Our team have considerable experience in advising on the site assembly and subsequent plot sales.

There are various options available to you when setting up a site such as selling freehold plots or granting long leases on residential flats preserving the value of the freehold. We can also advise as to how to deal with communal areas, if any, and the formation of management companies, if appropriate.

We offer a competitively priced plot sales service, with a personal and proactive approach, to ensure that reservations are actioned promptly and that contracts are exchanged within the reservation period, as far as is possible. We adopt a commercial approach which is flexible, responsive and practical.

We are fully conversant with the requirements of the Consumer Code for Home Builders, UK Finance Mortgage Lenders' Handbook, new build warranty providers and the Help to Buy Schemes, currently in existence.

We are supported by our construction, planning and environmental colleagues for technical advice and assistance as necessary.
