- Supporting Emma Honey in the acquisition of residential development sites on behalf of both substantial regional and national property developers, often structured by way of conditional contracts and option agreements. The transactions often involve tailor-made reporting which identify not only development issues but also highlight matters which could impact on future sales.
- Working with Lucy Smallwood in the disposal of land when acting for landowners. The transactions often involve coordinating with multiple landowners and their agents as well as tax and other advisors.
- Working with a number of house builders on several large site assemblies and management company structuring involving multi-disciplinary advice from the restate estate, planning and commercial teams.
- Acting for developers in golden brick development agreement transactions with registered providers of social housing with completions on a phased basis.
