How our construction solicitors in Reading can help

Negotiating and drafting construction contracts

Our expert construction solicitors have ample experience in negotiating and drafting construction contracts. At IBB Law, we work with many different types of clients, including engineering companies, property developers, house builders, banks, insurers, construction and engineering professionals and local government and not-for-profit organisations.

Our specialist construction solicitors can support you in drafting and negotiating building contracts to perfectly match your project and requirements.

Support with construction disputes

When disputes arise within construction projects, it’s important that you have legal guidance to protect your interests. If disputes cannot be avoided, we can offer early intervention processes and aid clients with resolution processes, including mediation or arbitration.

We appreciate that being faced with a dispute can be a stress-inducing experience and that you’ll want to get matters resolved as quickly as possible so not to compromise the success of your project.

Our solicitors can solve most disputes without having to escalate matters to Court. However, if clients are involved in complex construction disputes and Court cannot be avoided, we can provide full representation according to your needs.

Planning agreements

Our expert construction solicitors in Reading can offer commercially tactical advice at every stage of the planning process. We can offer bespoke recommendations on pre-application and infrastructure and planning processes, including:

Planning objections

When a planning application is submitted, the adjoining landowners have the option to raise an objection. If there is an objection to your planning position application, our construction lawyers in Reading can help you to make a case for continuing to pursue your project. We appreciate that delays in the process can be frustrating and will do everything in our power to help get things back on track.

Unlawful sites

Under some circumstances, it could be that development has been built without planning permission, and this is only discovered when the property is taken on by a new operator or when it is sold. If you’ve acquired a project and the development lacks planning permission, our solicitors can help you by attempting to prove that the development is now lawful.

Section 106 Agreements

These agreements ensure the release of planning permission. Section 106 agreements can be complicated and must pass various tests to achieve validity. Our specialist team can ensure that any issues are dealt with promptly and efficiently.

CMD regulations

Construction Design Management Regulations refer to a series of compliance steps that must be followed in order to ensure the health and safety of construction projects.

Commercial clients who are approaching a project for business have several duties which they must follow. For example, they must offer information about the site where the project will be undertaken, including information about hazards and site security, access and boundaries.

Our construction lawyers in Reading can offer advice on CMD and health and safety regulations to ensure that clients are fulfilling their duties and obligations in accordance with the law.

Our construction lawyers in Reading can offer support with various other construction related matters, such as:

  • Maintenance and operation agreements
