Residential Development

Here at Talbots Law we have a specialist team dealing with Residential Development matters.

We act for developers and house builders purchasing land or commercial property for residential development purposes. We work closely with our developer clients and their professional team including architects, planning consultants, accountants to ensure that they receive the best possible advice on their development. We can often be found out on site which gives us invaluable insight into the development and any potential issues that may arise that may not be apparent from looking at the paperwork.

As a specialist team, we offer a ‘cradle to grave’ service dealing with the land acquisition including development funding if required through to site set-up and plot sales.

We also specialise in acting for land owners in the sale of land for development and are able to advise on the terms of the sale whether that involves overage, uplift or clawback, joint venture and promotion agreements.
