New Homes Division

Our Partner-led New Homes Division focuses on understanding the needs of and listening to its national and regional/local housebuilder and residential developer clients at both a generic and individual level so as to deliver an exceptional bespoke tailored service.

Due to the way this large team is structured, each housebuilder / residential developer client can expect a dedicated team of 2-5 experienced individuals  (depending on the size of a development site) with whom a personal relationship can be developed resulting in a first class service.  We aim to be approachable and commercial and provide exceptional advice in a clear and easy to understand way and to be an integral part of our clients’ success story.

Each dedicated team has experience in advising on and dealing with:-

  • Acting for both national and regional/local housebuilder and residential developers.
  • Acting in connection with diverse projects from small residential developments  to large residential developments and mixed use developments, brownfield sites and town centre developments.
  • Site set-ups and creating detailed site-specific information packs for plot purchasers  solicitors so as to facilitate a quick exchange of contracts.
  • Arranging for conveyance plans and plot transfers and/or leases to be approved by the Land Registry prior to disposal of each unit.
  • Selling off-plan and completed units and preparing legal packs for foreign investor sales.
  • Setting up management companies to deal with the management of common parts/areas with bespoke articles of association, if required.
  • Providing regular reports and updates to help achieve our client’s deadlines.
