We are pleased to provide specialist advice from experienced residential and commercial property solicitors.

Site Acquisition and Disposal

Our Commercial Solicitors in Gatwick can will happily assist those in Crawley, Reigate and Redhill with their legal needs.

A major area of expertise for our commercial property department is land development work. We have extensive experience in acting for regional and national housebuilders, local developers, landowners, and have represented the region’s largest independent house builder on the acquisition and disposal of numerous sites.

We offer strategic advice and guidance on all aspects of site acquisition and disposal, including:

  • Option agreements
  • Overage agreements
  • Conditional contracts
  • Long and short term land acquisitions
  • Funding arrangements
  • Section 106 agreements
  • Planning agreements
  • Land exchanges
  • Bonds and collateral warranties
  • Infrastructure documentation
  • Joint venture agreements

Our prominent reputation throughout the region has led to our engagement in several high profile deals. These have included a 26-acre mixed site development consisting of a hotel and housing, the optioning of 12 acres of land to Persimmon Homes and numerous other residential, retail, office, industrial and business park developments.

We are frequently engaged in complex land assembly acquisitions, brownfield site redevelopment and affordable housing developments and have considerable experience in significant site disposals including public sector transactions.

Combining commercial understanding with our in-depth knowledge of planning means we can deliver tactical advice on development opportunities and are able to devise sophisticated acquisition and disposal strategies. From standard land acquisitions to multi-faceted development deals between landowners, house building consortia and housing associations, we are able to offer a sophisticated level of advice and a dedicated, client target-driven service.

One of the many things that set us aside from the competition is that we are friendly, approachable, and extremely knowledgeable. The team will always go above and beyond to support our clients, that's true whether you require general advice or specific support from a Gatwick or Crawley commercial solicitor. 

As a further step forward we are delighted that Louise Trist has joined us to help grow our team of experienced lawyers.
