Real Estate Development (Real Estate)

Real Estate Development

The UK left the EU on 31 January 2020. A transition period, during which EU laws continue to apply in the UK, is due to end on 31 December 2020. The UK/EU Withdrawal Agreement sets out transitional arrangements and negotiations for the future UK/EU relationship are ongoing.

Real estate development is becoming more challenging due to the increasing complexity of legislation and changing policies.

To meet these challenges we have put together a specialist team with extensive experience in property, planning, environment, construction and tax, and they have become the go-to real estate team on some of the sector’s most complex development schemes.

We are at home advising on the appropriate legal framework for each project, from the formation of development vehicles to securing finance and advising on the legal issues relating to both public and private sectors.

Our expertise covers site assembly and acquisitions, joint ventures, pre-lets, planning for residential, commercial and mixed-use schemes including compulsory purchase and environmental law, and construction documentation. We can also advise on complex neighbourly issues such as rights to light and rights of way.

Given the prominence of sustainability in all new development, we, Savills and Argent are now partnering with Property Week and UKGBC on an industry-wide Climate Crisis Challenge. The aims are two-fold: to raise awareness of industry-specific sustainability issues and look collectively at technological solutions and behavioural change to achieve industry-wide adoption of the World GBC Net Zero Carbon Buildings Commitment.
