Our new build services
Our developer sales team has in-depth experience in all areas of residential property development. We work with you throughout the pre-sales period to ensure that the paperwork is prepared well in advance of your marketing so that we can push ahead as soon as buyers are in place.
We liaise closely with you to iron out any problems ahead of time and anticipate the questions that we will be asked by your buyers’ solicitors. Our online client portal means you can access important documents and check progress at any time and from wherever you are. We’ll work to your timescales and deadlines to ensure that your commercial property business is a success and we’ll always be available to update you on progress and answer your questions.
Who we act for
Our clients include commercial property developers, house builders, landowners and those needing related legal advice, such as those in infrastructure businesses. We advise on development projects of all sizes, from single plot builds right through to large-scale construction by regional builders. This includes urban regeneration projects, mixed-use schemes, volume housing and standalone projects, such as single-building flat conversions.
We are involved in a transaction from start to finish, ensuring that key dates are met to help developers manage cash flow and deadlines.
During the acquisition and development process, we liaise with professionals in other disciplines such as surveyors, architects, accountants and commercial lenders to ensure that our clients have the services they need.
Our services cover all aspects of the legal requirements for residential property development, including the following:
Purchase and sale of land
It is essential that as a developer you are able to use the land you purchase in the way that you wish. We act in both the sale and purchase of land for development, ensuring that there are no restrictions in place to stop building going ahead.
We deal with the negotiations involved in site acquisitions, helping you to strike the right deal and drive your business forward profitably.
We’ll produce agreements for sale and lease, working with you to understand your needs for the property. We can also advise on and draft option agreements, conditional contracts, development or promotion agreements as well as producing construction and warranty documentation.
Our developer clients always appreciate our attention to detail in putting together sales information and contract packages in respect of plot sales. By preparing in advance and answering as many questions as possible before they arise we are able to encourage buyers to complete quickly.
We can advise on and draft residential lease agreements and where necessary deal with the creation of a management company for a new site.
Permissions and consents
The right planning advice and consent is essential for a developer. At Blaser Mills Law we’ll obtain all the necessary permissions, consents, overage agreements and s106 agreements on your behalf.
Once a property development has been completed, we can draft tenancy agreements to enable letting of homes. If you’re a landlord, we’ll help you comply with current landlord and tenant law and ensure that the right documentation is in place and that notices are served correctly and on time.
Complying with finance regulations and lender requirements is essential for your success as a developer. We work with you to ensure your proposed works don’t breach the terms of any loan or mortgage.
At Blaser Mills Law we also have tax and business specialists who will work with you to ensure that you have structured your affairs in the most tax-efficient way possible.
